Megaphone’s executive director steps down
Sean Condon
Megaphone magazine’s executive director has announced that he is leaving the publication for a position with the Vancity Community Foundation.

For ten years Sean Condon worked at the helm of Megaphone, a magazine sold in Victoria and Vancouver by homeless and low-income vendors.

Megaphone is published monthly by the not-for-profit Street Corner Media Foundation, which vendors buy for 75 cents and sell the magazine for $2. All of the money from any transaction goes to the vendor.
 
In a post on the magazines website Condon says he will remember his 10 years with pride. 

“I know how lucky I am to have held this position,” he writes. “Megaphone provides an incredibly necessary economic opportunity and voice to people who have been marginalized because of their health, income, gender, or race. I am eternally grateful to the vendors for giving me the chance to work with them.”

Read Condon’s full farewell message on the Megaphone website.
