Driver’s licenses for all, regardless of immigration status! Support HF1500!
Post-March actions you can do now
HF1500 is one of Women’s March Minnesota’s 2019 legislative priorities. This bill is about improving public safety, bolstering economic development, and building stronger families and communities for EVERYONE
Did you know that approximately 82,000 residents of Minnesota are eligible for a driver’s license or state ID, but cannot get one because they are undocumented immigrants. Many have been living here for decades and were able to obtain a driver’s license, until Governor Pawlenty changed the law in 2003. Imagine having your driving privileges and access to an ID stripped away. For undocumented immigrants, having access to a Driver’s License or State ID is both a matter of convenience, access and dignity to move around the state.
After the #FamiliesBelongTogether Marches, what now?
P.U.C. Approves Line 3. What's Next?
THANK YOU! Women’s March Minnesota deeply appreciates the support of the many individuals, communities, and organizations who join in our purpose of harnessing the power of women and their communities to create transformative social change.
We came together SATURDAY, JANUARY 19, in unity to fight all forms of oppression and injustice, because when we are together we are UNSTOPPABLE!
Here are actions you can take now.
Children must be reunited with their families. Children should not be in detention centers.
Last week, the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) approved Line 3, but there is still a long way to go before Enbridge can start construction on the tar sands oil pipeline.
Final days of argument before PUC decision on Line 3. Can you attend?
More horrors keep emerging on the family separation policy: 2,300 children removed from their parents in 6 weeks; younger kids and toddlers housed in “tender age” shelters; no plan yet on how to reunite kids with their parents!
Sex Trafficking Prevention Bill
There are 3 or possibly 4 more days left of the Public Utility Commission meeting to discuss the pros and cons of the Line 3 project. At the end of these meetings, the PUC will decide if Line 3 goes ahead.
Demand a Clean DREAM Act
A bill that needs to get a hearing this session and be voted in - a Sex Trafficking Prevention Bill aimed at bringing sex trafficking awareness into the school curriculum. Proposed by an enterprising group of Hopkins High School students (Girls United MN), this bill has bipartisan support.
In March 2018, an estimated 1,500 people will begin to lose current DACA status every day. To prevent this, Congress must act to pass the Dream Act into law.
