vendor power : celebrating new york city's Street Vendor Project

Vendor Power from Mimi Wong on Vimeo.

This week I attended the annual party/fundraiser for The Street Vendor Project, an amazing organization providing legal support and advocacy to the thousands of street vendors who line our streets with good food, accessories and artwork. They are one of the most remarkable elements of this city. Most are immigrants to the United States who face discrimination from the city government and police, as well as the hardships of sustaining a living in this city through small business. SVP fights on behalf of them.

The above video was presented at the event; trust me that you will enjoy it.

I encourage you to make a contribution or volunteer! www.streetvendor.org
