NEWS & UPDATES
UPDATE ON THE ID PROGRAM
The ID Program closed on April 30, 2022.
Since our start in March 2019, we've issued over 840 IDs.
Virginia now provides a Driver's Privilege card, and an Identification Privilege card. Most people who aren't U.S. citizens and don't meet the requirements for a state drivers license are eligible for these cards. Both are available at the local DMV. For the details, go to: https://www.dmv.virginia.gov/drivers/#driver_privilege_card.asp

"The card allowed me to open up a Comcast account and get cable and internet set-up in my home."
"I needed to get a medical appointment for my daughter, which required an ID. This was all I had, and they accepted it."
"My landlord was able to verify who I was and allowed me to sign my lease."
"The card helps me feel accepted by the community. I didn't feel that way before."
WHO WE ARE
As a nation, our diverse origins are and should be seen as a great strength. We strongly reject demonization of and attacks against immigrants and minorities and will take peaceful measures to oppose them.
Given this situation, our mission is to create a welcoming community, one that:
1. provides tangible support for all immigrants, and
2. educates the community about the needs and contributions of immigrants, refugees, and other minorities, especially those who are being marginalized today.
