#SB946 the Safe Sidewalk Vending Act introduced by Senator Ricardo Lara just passed through the California Senate with a 22 to 10 vote!

#SB946 is an important statewide proposal to decriminalize street vending in California and ensure permit programs are designed with public safety and health in mind, not discrimination against vendors.

Stay tuned for action alerts! The Safe Sidewalk Vending Act is now headed to Assembly and we need everyone’s support to make sure our Assembly members support this bill.

If you and/or your organization want to get involved in this important statewide work, email Carla, ELACC’s Director of Organizing.

Thank you to all of our partners working on this bill, special thanks to Senator Ricardo Lara, LURN, Public Counsel, LA Food Policy Counsel and the Vendor Leaders!
