VAMOS Unidos - Street Vendors Mobilizing and Organizing in Solidarity
VAMOS Unidos – Vendedoras Ambulantes Movilizando y Organizando en Solidaridad (Street Vendors Mobilizing and Organizing in Solidarity) is a Bronx community-based social justice organization founded by low-income Latina/o immigrant street vendors. VAMOS Unidos organizes Latina/o immigrants, currently predominantly street vendors, for economic and racial justice, immigrant rights, and police accountability. VAMOS Unidos’s vision is to develop a strong, empowered base and leadership of low-income Latina/o immigrant workers who are politically conscious, economically self sufficient, and able to win change on local and national policies. Our vision is grounded on the importance of social justice at the local, national, and global level by understanding the root causes and connection of our struggles with those in other communities.
