Bonnie Lane stands in front of Baltimore’s City Hall, arms crossed, lips pursed, on a mission.

Her stance is memorialized in a photo and article on the pages of Word on the Street, the fledgling newspaper she helped launch nearly a year ago. The “street paper” — one of 23 in the United States — is produced by homeless individuals like Lane and formerly homeless individuals and advocates.
