Movie Screening of The Hand That Feeds! 

The Hand That Feeds is the story of shy sandwich-maker Mahoma Lopez who sets out to end abusive conditions at a popular New York restaurant chain. The epic power struggle that ensues turns a single city block into a battlefield in America’s new wage wars.  A brilliant story about the power of an organized small group to change their own story.

And as if it couldn't get any better, order dinner and turn COLORS into a dine-in movie theater! Come on Out!

Learn about Street Vendor Project's #LifttheCaps Campaign
Watch this video and find out how you can support!
Despite attempts at making an honest living, vendors are subject to a litany of unjust regulations which make their work an incredible challenge. Since the early 1980s, an arbitrary cap has been placed on the number of available food permits and general vending licenses. This cap effectively makes street vending illegal for thousands of vendors and has led to the creation of a black market where permits (originally purchased from the City for $200) are now sold upwards of $20,000.

Lifting the caps on permits and licenses would not only decriminalize vending for the thousands of hard-working New Yorkers, but also generate a significant increase to New York City’s revenue. As vendors, workers, politicians, business owners, and community-based organizations, we support a bill that would lift the caps and allow members of our communities to work legally and justly.

Sign the petition to urge NYC to #LifttheCaps!
