Let Us Vend! Street Vendors Demand Inclusion in a Just Recovery

August 13, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

LET US VEND: Lift the Cap on Permits Now!
NYC Street Vendors Demand Inclusion in a Just Recovery
On Thursday, August 13th, join Street Vendors from across NYC, allies, and elected officials to demand Speaker Corey Johnson and NY City Council support street vendors by passing #Intro1116 – legalizing our small businesses and #LiftTheCaps on permits!

Join us for a rally, followed by a celebration of street food & culture with churros, mangos, and icees provided by vendors from Brooklyn to the Bronx, and music by

Academia De Mariachi Nuevo Amanecer


Street vendors are essential workers who have been ensuring our neighborhoods have access to fresh, affordable food throughout the pandemic – yet they have been excluded from almost every form of relief. Reform on NYC’s outdated and unjust street vending system is the least we deserve.
Vendors don’t just belong on NYC postcards – they belong in NYC’s #Covid19 recovery plan too. 37 years without permits is enough. It’s time to pass #Intro1116.
