Beloved Family and Friends,

Governor Murphy has officially expanded Driver's Licenses for All making New Jersey the 15th state!

Thank you Governor Murphy and current leadership for the passage of this historic law. This is an especially gratifying moment for our many organizers and leaders that have dedicated their time and energy to getting this bill passed. Our focus has always been on protecting the rights of the most vulnerable. Now, because of this measure immigrants regardless of status, survivors of domestic abuse, returning citizens, and many others will gain the ability to obtain a driver's license. Thanks to this law hundreds of thousands of people cannot just survive, but thrive and look towards a future where they can provide for their families and have an improved quality of life. We celebrate this step towards building the beloved community; one of hope, justice, opportunity, and love. 

None of this would not have been possible without everyone from Faith in New Jersey. We've been in this fight from the beginning, before we even became a state-wide organization over 5 years ago. This would not have happened without our powerful leaders from across this great state the showed up for justice day after day. This would not have happened without the clergy that continually reminded us all of our moral obligation to put love in action.

This victory is all of ours! 

With gratitude and love, 

Charlene Walker, Executive Director
