April Smith of AHA MEDIA is very proud to be on the cover of Megaphone Magazine in Vancouver Downtown Eastside

Yes, in this issue we feature April Smith; once homeless and searching for herself on the streets of the Downtown Eastside, she is now one of the city’s leading social media activists.

We look at Leef Evans, who battled crippling depression in his Single Room Occupancy (SRO) hotel, yet has gone on to become one of the city’s most formidable artists and a big part in the burgeoning street soccer movement. And we remember Margaret Prevost, a disabled athlete known to many as ‘the mayor of the Downtown Eastside’, who sadly passed away last month.

Megaphone’s mission is to provide an opportunity for our homeless and low-income vendors. We are very proud of how hard our vendors work – to become self-sufficient and build grassroots support to end poverty. Please support our vendors by buying a copy of the magazine from them.
