Vendor Power! ~ NYC Street Entrepreneur Rights!

Wow, thanks to my MIT DUSP IDG colleague Professor Annette Kim's Sidewalk Laboratory for spotlighting Vendor Power! This essential and effective street guide by artist+designer+planner Candy Chang makes city regulations available to the incredible everyday urban entrepreneurs who especially need the knowledge!
"Vendor Power! translates the most commonly violated rules into accessible diagrams. It also illustrates vendors’ rights and includes text in English, Bengali, Chinese, Arabic, and Spanish. The guide also serves as an educational/advocacy tool and includes a poster full of fun facts on the history and challenges of NYC street vending, personal vendor stories, and policy reform recommendations"
