“Public invited to join Racine Interfaith Coalition to continue work to restore drivers licenses for immigrants and low income people.”
RACINE, WI DECEMBER 6, 2018 – Members of the public are invited to join the Racine Interfaith Coalition and Voces de la Frontera for a community forum on legislative efforts to restore drivers licenses for immigrants and low income people.
The Driver Licenses for All campaign is supported by a coalition of local businesses, community based organizations, youth groups, unions, and churches that support the restoration of access to driver licenses for Wisconsin residents.
The restoration of Wisconsin driver licenses would improve the well-being of Wisconsin children and families and make Wisconsin highways and roads safer for everyone.
An estimated 32,000 Wisconsin residents would be eligible to obtain licenses if barriers were removed. Of residents who would get licenses, 14,000 live with children and would be able to provide better care for them. 22,000 residents who would get driver licenses are employed and would be able to get to work more safely.
The community forum will take place on Saturday, December 8th at 1 p.m. at the Racine Labor Center located at 2100 Layard Ave. For more information call 262/635-9532.
