We keep advancing toward justice

15 Apr 2019

Some people who follow our work -- and surely all our members -- are tired that we are still fighting for food vending permits, after launching the campaign in May 2014 and almost winning in December 2017. But here we are!

We'll keep fighting until we get some justice. A bill (very similar to the last one) to double the number of vending permits (while also streamlining enforcement and creating a Vendor Advisory Board) was introduced in October 2018, and it had a City Hall hearing last week. Several hundred vendors came out to plea for change, as did a huge coalition of organizations in support. Yes, the real estate folks were there again. But as time goes on, it seems like the are fighting a losing fight.  Pa'lante!
