TELL LAWMAKERS: END DEBT-BASED DRIVER'S LICENSE SUSPENSIONS

TAKE ACTION NOW

Every year, Massachusetts suspends the driver's licenses of tens of thousands of people for defaulting on debt, even when the reason for their debt has nothing to do with driving safety violations or traffic laws. This punishes poor and rural populations, and perpetuates inequalities in the criminal legal system.

We're calling on lawmakers to support H.3453/S.2304, a bill that would end these kinds of debt-based license suspensions in Massachusetts. Will you lend your support?
