Taking It To The Streets

"It's not hard to see what differences we've made."
Sean Basinski, Founder of Street Vendor Project

eClips just added an interview with social entrepreneur Sean Basinski to our collection. Basinski is the Director of the Street Vendor Project.

Sean Basinski is the Director of the Street Vendor Project. The Street Vendor Project works to correct the social and economic injustice faced by street vendors in New York City. Reaching out to vendors on the street, the organization holds clinics to educate vendors about their legal rights. Working to support a local vendors' rights movement, they organize vendors to participate in the political process that determines their fate.

Sean Basinski received his JD from Georgetown University Law Center and his undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania. For nine months before he started law school, Sean built a pushcart and sold Mexican food on Park Avenue and 52nd Street.
