BREAKING: 🚨🚨@CosechaMovement and @NeverAgainActn are visiting MA Speaker of the House DeLeo’s office to tell him that he has the power to push the legislation forward for drivers licenses for undocumented folks. Check this thread for updates #LicensesForAll
@CosechaMovement If you're on Facebook, follow the livestream here:…
@CosechaMovement Background: There are 14 states and two municipalities in the United States that let undocumented immigrants apply for drivers’ licenses. If Massachusetts is really such a progressive state, why have our legislators not passed licenses yet?
@CosechaMovement #LicensesForAll stimulates the state and local economies by increasing mobility of the community and allows ALL MA residents to meet their basic needs and responsibilities, like attending medical appointments, taking their kids to school, and completing everyday tasks
@CosechaMovement Passing laws like this one demonstrate to the federal gov that immigrants are welcome in this country; while the federal government is attacking and persecuting the immigrant community, MA has an opportunity to demonstrate our solidarity with the immigrant community
@CosechaMovement UPDATE: Activists have begun a sit-in at @SpeakerDeLeo's office to demand that he support #LicensesForAll
@CosechaMovement @SpeakerDeLeo Please sign (and share) this petition asking Rep. Bill Straus and @SpeakerDeLeo to support the immigrant community fighting for drivers licenses in MA…
@CosechaMovement @SpeakerDeLeo Some photos of these courageous activists sitting in at @SpeakerDeLeo's office to pressure him to take action to protect the immigrant community and that the transportation committee vote in support of the driver's license bill (H.3012)
@CosechaMovement @SpeakerDeLeo One of the activists tells their story:

"How can you tell us we can't drive on the roads that we built?"
@CosechaMovement @SpeakerDeLeo Another activist:

"I'm here because I like following the rules, but the rules aren't working for us. They aren't working for our communities. People need to drive!"

@CosechaMovement @SpeakerDeLeo LICENSES CAN'T WAIT

Text LICENCIAS to 41411

@CosechaMovement @SpeakerDeLeo Another activist telling it like it is:

"Historically change in society comes mainly from people power"
@CosechaMovement @SpeakerDeLeo An activist talks about how now we are in the 10 Days of Repentance between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and we need to not only think about changing ourselves, but about how to change the world we live in as well
