Street vendors are vital to the local economies of neighborhoods throughout California. From fresh fruit to L.A.’s famous hot dogs, the food and resources that street vendors provide both feed and sustain our communities.

Here’s the problem: the permits required to vend legally are nearly impossible to secure and the fees from permitting issues can cost a family their livelihood. That’s by design.

But Senate Bill 972 can fix this. 

The State Assembly is about to vote on SB 972. Email your state assemblymember today to voice your support for SB 972 – a bill that would modernize the state’s food code, protect street vending, and bolster the hard working vendors that contribute to the culture and vitality of our state.

Take action and email your legislator demanding they protect California Street Vendors.
