Surviving The Sidewalk: Latino Street Vendors in Los Angeles 

When: Tue., Oct. 29, 4 p.m. 2019
Latino street vendors are such a huge part of California’s culture, few people give them a second thought. Rocío Rosales, Assistant Professor of Sociology, UC Irvine, wanted to explore what life was like for the vendors that serve frutero, the made-to-order fruit salads in push carts. Many of them are undocumented, and struggle against harsh anti-vending laws in Los Angeles. For six years, she interviewed and worked alongside several of these people to understand the nuances of their lives, and their trials and tribulations. It’s all in her forthcoming book Fruteros: Street Vending, Illegality, and Ethnic Community in Los Angeles, which is due to release next year on University of California Press. She will speak at the Latinx Research Center on Tuesday about what she learned and the methods she used the past six years.
