Our Executive Director Manny Rodriguez recently presented during a press conference on the License to Work initiative, and his remarks were so powerful that we wanted to share with you.
A driver’s license is a passport to a job. Over 80% of Illinoisans drive to work, and data shows that up to 42% of individuals lose their jobs following the suspension of their license.
On March 31, the Transit Table coalition will present a new report detailing significant progress towards ending debt-based driver’s license suspension in Illinois, and illustrate the major racial equity implications of reform.
