This toolkit was compiled by Joan Friedland, Melissa Keaney, Ignacia Rodriguez, Perla Esquivel, and Tanya Broder. It was edited and formatted by Richard Irwin.
The toolkit reflects the work of immigrants’ rights, legal services and community-based organizations from across the U.S. that have engaged in driver’s license campaigns. These groups created many of the resources highlighted here.
Documents linked to in this toolkit that were produced or published by organizations other than NILC and that were uploaded to NILC’s website (so they could be included in the toolkit) were uploaded with the permission of the producing/publishing organization. To ask permission to republish or otherwise use any such document, please contact the organization that produced it.
