We’re here outside the Massachusetts State House in Boston in support of @MovimientoCosecha, with immigrants and allies. We demand that legislators follow through on their promises to protect immigrants in the state of Massachusetts. THREAD:
The undocumented community has been fighting for driver’s licenses for 15 years, and still lawmakers have not delivered on promises to grant access to licenses regardless of immigration status.
Last month, @MovimientoCosecha held a quinceanera to “celebrate” 15 years of fighting for this right. They've been delivering cake to lawmakers in the weeks since, one piece for every year the immigrant community has waited for licenses. Today they'll deliver the 15th piece.
Driving without a license is necessary for many in the immigrant community, to do things like taking their children to school and getting to work. Driving without a license means that people live in fear of being stopped by police and it leading to detention and deportation.
Fourteen other states along with DC and Puerto Rico have already passed laws allowing the undocumented community to have driver’s licenses. Will Massachusetts be the next state to take this step for the immigrant community’s freedom and safety?
NOW That's what we call solidarity!

Inside and outside of the Massachusetts State House activists from @NeverAgainActn and @CosechaMovement work together to put pressure on lawmakers to pass the #LicensesForAll bill.
@CosechaMovement As one of the activists inside stated earlier:

"How can you tell us we can't drive on the roads that we built?"
@CosechaMovement Speakers speak about the Key Cosecha Principles
and thank the activists and organizers form the past who have paved the way for us now
@CosechaMovement Some signs from the action:
@CosechaMovement El pueblo unido jamás será vencido

The people united will never be defeated
@CosechaMovement Licenses for all
