on Ann Arbor City Streets and Sidewalks
City of Ann Arbor has imposed a peddler permit moratorium until April 1. The city has also imposed a 3 day prior issuance rule which means vendors have only April 1 and April 2 to apply for a city permit. City requires personal appearance, insurance, and photo ID to apply. Ronald A. Olson, Ann Arbor City Administrator, has taken it upon himself, exceeding his legal authority, to ban all peddling around the University of Michigan Diag. If you are a peddler, or have a sidewalk occupancy permit near the Diag, or a T-shirt printer, who has been damaged or will be damaged by the City Administrator's action, call us at 677-0009 to become a litigant.

at After Rally (tentatively at North University Ave btwn State St and Thayer)
First Amendment Protected: City Peddlers Permit NOT required. All goods must bear a non-commercial message, word, or symbol. Hemp goods are not protected (unless bearing a non-commercial message, word, or symbol). If you wish to vend at the After Rally you will need to contact Rich at 734-677-0009. Rich will submit a list of vendors who claim First Amendment Protection to the City of Ann Arbor and the Ann Arbor Police.
Others: City peddlers permit required. Hopefully if the After Rally goes well this year, After Rally organizers will seek a permit exemption in future years. Contact Rich at 734-677-0009.
All After Rally vendors are requested to donate a portion of their sales to defer costs to stage the After Rally.
City has denied our permit request. Litigation may be pending. See "on Arbor City Streets and Sidewalks"

at After Rally & Dominick's (812 Monroe)
Call Rich at 734-677-0009, 734-645-6060. No additional City permits required! No insurance required!

on Diag
The University of Michigan has steadfastly refused to allow any sales or solicitations, even 1st Amendment protected activity, on or near the Diag, except for University recognized organizations. Call us at 677-0009 if you've been busted there.
