This is the official go fund me account for justice4Juan the hotdog vendor at UC Berkeley.

We have garnered support from thousands of concerned and compassionate people. In this process we have learned that Beto has had a dream to own a Food Truck. Therefore, the goal has been modified to help him fulfill that dream. A new truck with new equipment fully permitted and wrapped cost around $150,000. Let's help make Beto's dream a reality! Spread the love and tell your friends.

Background on the story
On Saturday, September 9, 2017 I took my children to enjoy a Cal Beekeley football game. We had a great time. After the game I promised them that I would support the hotdog vendors by buying food from them. I captured this video as we were interrupted by UC Berkeley Police officer. Thank you for your compassion to support this effort.

We are excited to share with you that we have raised $92,560 with 5,807 donors and counting. On Saturday September 23rd following the check Presentation at UC Berkeley, Beto and I submitted the request to GoFundMe to release funds. They take 5 to 7 business days to complete the transaction. Beto has granted me permission to receive the funds from GoFundMe and upon receiving them I will get a cashiers check and give it to him. Note that GoFundMe charges 8% for their services.

We will keep the account active. The story of Beto is a symbol of hard working people who are trying to provide an honest living for their families. Our hope is that we can generate enough funds for a new truck or another food business that is licensed and/or permitted. The public response has been such an inspiration that people from throughout this country have gave from their hearts to show support.

Thanks to the University of California Berkeley Center for Latino Policy Research for hosting a great event where the check was presented to Beto on Saturday, September 23rd

Update Thursday, September 14, 2017 at 8am

I want to take this time to thank everyone who has been supportive. I want to announce that we have decided to do the check presentation to Beto aka "Juan the Hotdog Street Vendor" on Saturday, September 23, 2017. After careful and thoughtful consideration, we have decided to do in Berkeley. All funds will be going to Beto (minus the fees that GoFundMe charges). It has been Beto's dream to own a Food Truck. Let's help make this a reality. More details on time and specific location will be shared depending on the anticipated attendance
Muchas Gracias

We will be hosting a public venue in Los Angeles within a couple of weeks to present the GoFundMe funds. As we confirm details, I will share them with the public and media. A friendly reminder that NO funds from this account are going to me. All funds will go to Juan (Beto) and the efforts to support street vendors in advocacy. Thank you again for all of your support and helping us Humanize Street Vendors and NOT Criminalize
