3/14 STATE HOUSE ACTION DAY

We are making history in VT! While other states scapegoat and criminalize immigrants, Vermont is moving to embrace our tireless migrant farmworkers as equal members of our community!

S-238 was introduced in the Vermont Senate to provide a path for a state issued ID for farm workers. Migrant Justice partnered with the Senate Agriculture Committee to make the bill extend driver’s licenses to VT residents who don't have access to Social Security Numbers.
