RESPECT IS A TWO-WAY STREET



Yellow Brick Road is proud to support the City of Portland's new campaign to promote respectful use of the sidewalks for all our citizens. Our partners at STREET ROOTS have launched the campaign and are distributing posters to downtown service agencies and businesses to be displayed in windows to help encourage kindness and respect among people outside asking for change. Street Roots recognizes that the issue of panhandling is a reality in our community, and one that needs to be met with a more original approach. Street Roots has covered sidewalk issues concerning people experiencing homelessness for more than a decade, and believes that the only way to address the issue is to be proactive and experiment with out of the box projects that will encourage tolerance and respect among both the general public and individuals begging for change. Our hope is that through the poster campaign, we can help educate panhandlers in a way that targets behavior and asks people to have both respect and courtesy on Portland’s sidewalks. Janus Youth Programs proudly displays these posters on our shelter building and encourage all our community partners and stakeholders to consider joining the movement for respectful sidewalks. Contact Street Roots to obtain your FREE posters in either 16" x 20" or 8.5" x 11" sizes.
