Dear Friend

We invite you to join us in the Green Light NY: Driving Together! campaign to expand access to drivers’ licenses to all New Yorkers, regardless of immigration status. Please sign this petition to join the campaign and show your support for immigrant rights and safer roads in New York State. There are 12 STATES nationwide that already offer licenses to undocumented drivers; New York is falling behind California and Washington and our neighbors Connecticut and Vermont as a national leader on immigrant rights. Attached is a fact sheet that explains why immigrant access to drivers’ license are urgently needed. Without licenses, immigrants cannot drive to work or buy groceries or take their children to school or the hospital. When immigrants don’t have access to licenses, a routine traffic stop can lead to deportation and the separation of families. Moreover, extended licenses to immigrants will make our roads safer and lead to a stronger New York economy. Please fill in the form below to urge New York to give a GREEN LIGHT to immigrant licenses!
