History of Driver's Licenses for undocumented people in NJ :
For a long time, New Jersey's pro-imimgrant community has worked to win driver's licenses for the undocumented community through negotiations and using relationships with politicians. Although we agree that internal relations with politicians are important, during the 2015 campaign we learned that this is not enough. We learned that we can only win if the community takes to the streets in massive numbers. This is the objective and role that Harvest New Jersey has taken. We need other organizations to negotiate with politicians, However our role is to focus on our community and egage them. In January we started mass trainings in Trenton. Since then, we have created circles in more than 10 cities around the state that have executed local marches, trainings and community meetings. Our movement is exclusively led by volunteers and our circles are coordinated by a team of immigrant workers.
Our license campaign takes us one step closer to the respect, dignity and permanent protection that we need in New Jersey. It's time to move on to our second campaign phase.
