Making Policy Public

Vendor Power! decodes the rules and regulations for New York’s 10,000 street vendors so they can understand their rights, avoid fines, and earn an honest living. Did you know you can get a $1000 ticket for parking more than 18 inches from the curb? It doubles as a poster on the rich landscape and history of vending in the City.

The Center for Urban Pedagogy in New York has a program called Making Policy Public, which focuses on educating people about places, and the ways places change. The program has produced issues that explain complex issues into a well-designed brochure infographic, such as this one on NYC street vendor regulations:

Other posters/issues include predatory equity, globalized shipping network, and social security.
