In this city, if you get caught selling a paleta you’re treated like a criminal. We don’t think that makes a whole lot of sense. Especially when Angelenos turn to street vending to pull themselves out of poverty.
#LAStreetVendors love our city and fighting for these hard working entrepreneurs should be in the interest of everyone. The LA Street Vendor Campaign has been able to demonstrate what real vendor power looks like. Over the past year, more than 1,500 Angelenos turned out to tell the Mayor and LA City Council to #LegalizeStreetVending. To commemorate this movement, we’re asking for your support by purchasing an official “Legalize Street Vending” campaign shirt! We’re trying to raise $1,000 to help support the organizing work on the ground.
It’s a win-win. You get an awesome shirt and your contribution goes right back into the campaign. You can also represent in support of #LAStreetVendors when you aren’t snacking on delicious street food or picking up some handmade art.
