Since the start of the COVID-19 crisis, the affiliates of StreetNet International mobilized to support their members. Throughout lockdowns and quarantines, they continued to approach their governments and advocate for the rights and livelihoods of their members, calling for recognition of the value of their work. In many countries, StreetNet affiliates are playing their essential role in tackling COVID-19 jointly with government agencies.

The actions of StreetNet International and its affiliates are an illustration of solidarity and the power of collective action by informal economy workers in times of crisis.
