Across New York, undocumented residents struggle to get to work and take their children to school because they do not have access to driver’s licenses. Denying people the ability to get a driver’s license denies them the chance to participate equally in everyday life.
Equal access to driver’s licenses will make our roads safer, allow immigrants to lead fuller lives, raise state revenue, and reduce the risk that a routine traffic stop can result in arrest, detention, or even deportation due to President Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda.
TAKE ACTION: Tell lawmakers to pass the Green Light bill to give all New Yorkers equal access to licenses.
