Drivers Licenses for All
The Work and Family Mobility Act (H.3012 (Farley-Bouvier and Barber) and S.2061 (Crighton) is about improving public safety and mobility for all Massachusetts families. By allowing all immigrants to apply for a drivers’ license, regardless of immigration status, this bill would ensure that our immigrant friends and neighbors can take their children to the doctor or to school without fear of detention or deportation. With immigrants under constant attack by Washington, it’s our duty to protect our community members while making sure that all our state’s drivers pass the same test and understand the rules of the road.

Last week we thought that the Labor Day weekend would be a quiet weekend, however, it turned out that in addition to the Labor Day March and Rally on Monday, the Joint Committee on Transportation scheduled the hearing for the Work and Family Mobility Act (H.3012 and S.2061) on Wednesday, September 4. The coalition on very short notice was able to mobilize more than 800 supporters who packed the hearing room from across Massachusetts to testify and show solidarity and support for the bill.
