An atmosphere of positive energy and a sense of organized chaos coated Room 10 of the State House on Wednesday, April 18th as more than 60 migrant workers, farmers, and community allies gathered to celebrate passing S-238, the study committee on drivers licenses, as a significant step towards building a movement for drivers licenses for all Vermont residents next year.
We kicked off the morning with a teach-in and constant revolving door of legislator visits who had been flooded with notes from constituents invited to come join us.
Let's make history THIS WEEK with Vermont farm workers, farmers, and fair food and human rights allies by organizing to pass S-238, a bill that will make accessible Vermont IDs and drivers' licenses to Vermont's tireless migrant workers!

It’s the Friday before Christmas. As I approach the Gatehouse of the immigrant detention center in Batavia I am a little anxious about what lies ahead, but also amazed that what I thought was impossible last night is unfolding now.
