Spare Change News is a Cambridge-based alternative bi-weekly newspaper focusing on local homelessness and poverty issues.
Whats Up Magazine was, from 1997-2007, Boston’s youth-driven publication about arts and social justice.
Both are street papers, produced by volunteers and sold by homeless and formerly homeless vendors in need of extra cash. Whats Up Magazine has recently merged with Spare Change, unifying Boston’s street papers into one powerhouse of publication and distribution. Whats Up is a program of Spare Change, a 4-page insert within Spare Change's 16 pages.
