StreetWise INK is Memphis’ only T-Shirt Screen Printing Workers-Cooperative that is organized and operated exclusively by individuals with experiences of homelessness. They provide high-quality, custom, hand printed t-shirts for a variety of needs. Unlike the vast majority of businesses that seek to “empower the homeless,” Streetwise Ink is unique in that it has been worker-led from its inception. StreetWise INK is further developing their screen printing and business skills while creating steady jobs and income for themselves and others with experiences of homelessness, extreme poverty, and other obstacles to finding meaningful and sustainable work in the Memphis area.
Find StreetWise INK at the Living the Legacy of NonViolence, 36th anniversary dinner with Rosa Clemente this weekend! They’ll be tabling in the back of the sanctuary on the right hand side where you’ll be able to purchase your 2018 limited edition Necessary Troublemaker t-shirt. Other shirts that will be available include MSPJC, HOPE, and possibly a surprise shirt from StreetWise INK itself.
