Who We Are

This campaign is spearheaded by the Street Vendor Project, part of the Urban Justice Center, which is a non-profit organization that provides legal representation and advocacy to various marginalized groups of New Yorkers.  SVP is a member-led organization working to promote street vendor rights in NYC.

There are more than 20,000 street vendors in New York City ranging from hot dog vendors to flower vendors, from Halal food trucks to street artists. Over 90% of vendors come from immigrant communities, and not only contribute to this city’s rich culture but also stimulate its economy by serving tourists and residents from every income level.
