LYNDA J. TIPTON MEMORIAL AWARD FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE
THE STREET VENDORS ASSOCIATION OF CHICAGO
The Street Vendors Association of Chicago (SVAC) fights for an inclusive economy by organizing street vendors to build political and economic power without fear of police harassment, excessive fines, and discrimination. Subsequently, SVAC led the campaign to push Chicago’s City Council to legalize street vending in 2015. Further, SVAC played a crucial role in the passing of the Limited Worker Cooperative Association Act, which enables worker-owned cooperatives to register as business organizations in Illinois. SVAC provides a sustainable model and structures for an equitable economy and development in communities experiencing racial wealth divides and active disinvestment.
Help us meet our goal of raising $150,000 to support movement work in Chicago. We are over 71% of our fundraising goal!
