Let’s Drive NJ Rally
With Election Day over, the Legislature is in the final stretch of this session. We need New Jersey to become the 15th state to expand driver’s licenses to all qualified drivers, regardless of immigration status. We urge our state to protect drivers’ privacy and ensure that licenses and state ID cards are fully accessible to all New Jersey residents, regardless of income, age, or gender identity.
|LET’S DRIVE, NEW JERSEY RALLY
Rally to Expand Driver’s License Access to All.
Thursday, November 7, 10:30 a.m.
We live in a state in which people identify themselves by highway exit: driving is practically a necessity here. We need to ensure that all safe and responsible drivers can be licensed, regardless of federal immigration status. New Jersey needs a licensing system that will respect residents’ privacy while providing seniors, people with low income, survivors of domestic violence, and other community members equal access to state identification cards and driver’s licenses.
Join us for a rally in Trenton, at the New Jersey State House Annex on Thursday, November 7, to demand legislators to pass driver’s licenses for all!
Expanding driver’s license access strengthens road and public safety, our economy and the well-being of all families. Now is the moment to pass this legislation!
Legislation to expand access to driver’s licenses would:
- Allow an additional 700,000-plus New Jersey residents to apply for a driver’s license.
- Generate tens of millions of dollars in revenue and taxes for the state’s general fund.
- Make our roads safer by having all drivers properly tested, licensed, and insured.
- Protect the well-being of immigrant families by letting people get around more freely, allowing them to more easily provide for themselves and their families.
More than ever, New Jersey has the opportunity to pass legislation that would benefit all New Jerseyans. Rally with us on Thursday, November 7 to make our state safer and stronger by expanding license access to all.
