second line street vendor petition

The second line culture is a African American tradition that is over 150 years old. This culture serves as an economic and social safety net that grew out of necessity, neglect, and segregation that blocked Black New Orleanians from access to benefits. Second line vendors selling food and drink to parade followers is an economic engine for those with limited access to industries. The City going after vendors that are trying to make an honest living within the context of our culture constitutes harassment of street culture. Leave our culture and traditions alone! Leave second line street vendors alone!
