Esperanza del Barrio

Esperanza del Barrio was founded by a group of five Latina women ready to organize to create positive change both in their lives and in their community. These women had the desire to affect the institutions and outdated policies that prevent them from supporting their families and contributing fully to the community in which they actively participate. Fed up with police abuse and anti-immigrant restrictions on the street vendor license application process, vendors organized to learn and assert their rights.
