Your Action of the Week:
"Support a Driver's License for all"
HB 2015 Driver’s Licenses for All
The ability to drive legally is vital for many Oregonians as they take their kids to school, commute to work, and contribute to their communities. Without the ability to apply for a license to drive, parents are forced to make an impossible choice between risking arrest and deportation or choosing not to drive and being unable to care for their families. Having the ability to apply for a license to drive gives all Oregonians, including those without legal status, the opportunity to follow the law, get to work and school safely, and provide for their families and communities.
Today, we are one step closer to passing Driver’s Licenses for ALL. The Joint Committee on Transportation moved the Equal Access to Roads Act (HB 2015) out of the committee. We are one step closer to making sure not one more person is separated from their families over a simple traffic stop.
As we move on to the Ways and Means committee, we need you to persist in contacting your legislators to urge them to move HB 2015 forward. The countdown has started and our opposition isn’t backing down. We can’t allow their hate and xenophobia to deter our legislators from doing the right thing by passing Driver’s Licenses for All.
Our goal is to generate 5,000 emails into legislative offices this week.
Will you help us get there by sending an email today and sharing this link with 5 of your friends?
