LEGALIZE STREET VENDING NOW!
Join MEChA of Maya Angelou, LA Street Vendor-leaders, Union del Barrio, and the LA Street Vendor Campaign for a community event to uplift and celebrate the lives and struggles of #LAStreetVendors through a FotoNovela.
We partnered with UCLA PhD candidate LeighAnna Hidalgo, to create a mixed-media story telling tool that offers a deeper look into the lives and struggles of #LAStreetVendors. It was produced in partnership with the East LA Community Corporation (ELACC) and members of the LA Street Vendor Campaign.
While city leaders continue to debate a new policy, hard working families face the reality of criminalization because an outdated ban on sidewalk vending. Hear their stories, support their struggle. LA City Councilman Curren Price supports a policy that would legalize street vending, and he will share a few words.
Event starts at 5:30PM
