Benjamin Ramirez was selling food in street of Los Angeles when he got into a confrontation with a gentleman that destroyed his cart. He uses that cart to support himself. Street vendors are a vital part of the economy and culture that is Los Angeles. Please donate so that we can replace and give Benjamin a new cart. Let's send a message that hate will not trump Elotes!

Benjamin's half -sister Virginia Reyes will receive the money in her bank account and then write checks of the exact from each campaign to Benjamin's name. We will post a picture of the amount deposited in Virginia's bank account and later when she gives Benjamin the checks in person. Thank you for all your support!"
