Close to a million Floridians currently don’t have access to a driver’s license due to their immigration status, impacting the public safety and economic prosperity in Florida. Our goal with this campaign is to expand the methods for identity verification, so every trained and capable driver can access a license and insurance, regardless of immigration status. While Driver’s License is our primary goal,
FLIC is also calling for a new, free identification card for all Miami-Dade and Florida residents, which gives all of us the opportunity to show who we are— Miamians /Floridians. Municipal IDs benefit every resident, including the most vulnerable communities – the homeless, youth, LGBTQ, the elderly, undocumented immigrants, the formerly incarcerated, and others who may have difficulty obtaining other government-issued ID.
