The time to pass the NY Dream Act and Drivers’ Licenses for all is now!
Immigrant New Yorkers throughout the state need equal access to Driver’s Licenses and Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) to reach their full potential in our fast-growing state.
Driver’s License for All would allow NYS residents access to a driver’s license, regardless of their immigration status. This bill will keep immigrant families together, make roads safer and boost the economy.
NYS DREAM Act would allow undocumented students who meet the criteria to apply for state financial aid. This bill is critical in providing tuition equity and equal opportunity to undocumented youths in our state.
Our communities have waited far too long. It’s time for New York State to make them a reality. Sign the petition now!Take Action!
Mayor de Blasio: We Demand That NYC Include Delivery Workers In The Framework By Legalizing E-bikes!
Most e-bikes in New York City, particularly those used by tens of thousands of low-wage, predominantly immigrant workers, are excluded from this new legal clarification. This means that workers are still fined up to $500 solely for operating an e-bike in New York City, and their bikes are confiscated – leaving them unable to provide for their families while their cases linger in court. There needs to be a clear way for workers to convert their e-bikes and make them legal. It’s time to #DeliverJustice!

Governor Cuomo: Create One Fair Wage for Tipped Earners Across New York State!
Did you know that workplaces that pay people in tips are getting away with paying New Yorkers LESS THAN the minimum wage?
Restaurant servers, bussers, hosts, bartenders, car washers, and nail salon techs have rallied to end the subminimum wage that keeps them in poverty. To make game-changing progress for 400,000 New York residents who live off tips, we need to outnumber the corporate fat cats.
Sign our petition to Governor Cuomo to voice your support for One Fair Wage for tipped earners in New York!Take Action!
