Vendor Calvin Turner was beaten last week in a Belltown alley April 7, and we have reason to believe that the attack, by two or more people, was racially motivated. While a police investigation is underway we can't say much more, but we will do everything we can to protect the people who sell the paper. You can help too: keep an eye out for your vendor and let them know you care. If you'd like to help Calvin in his recovery, donations may be made to him care of Real Change. To see Calvin speaking about his experience in a King5 television news broadcast, go to our blog at www.realchangenews.org.
