The Street Vendor Project of the Urban Justice Center is a grassroots membership organization that helps street vendors take action to defend and expand their rights, improve their working conditions, and strengthen and grow their businesses. We also celebrate the long history of street vending in New York City, the vibrancy and energy street vending brings to communities throughout the city, and the diversity of cultures from which vendors come.
The Urban Justice Center serves low-income and marginalized New Yorkers through a unique combination of direct legal services, systemic advocacy, community education, and political organizing.

The Street Vendor Project, one of the UJC's programs, maintains this website to provide additional resources and information specifically about and for our vending community.
