Jennifer Salgado is SVP’s Lead Organizer. She is the daughter of immigrant parents who migrated to the US from a small town in Guerrero, Mexico. For the past few years, she has been an education organizer in the Bronx and Brooklyn where she’s worked to elevate parent voices and bring their issues at the forefront in otherwise exclusive spaces. At the Street Vendor Project, she hopes to build power within the vending community to create longstanding change for Black and Indigenous People of Color and this way pay homage to her family, who turned to street vending when they first arrived in the states. Jennifer was born and raised in the Bronx where she currently still lives.
