Cal ID Advocacy Campaign
Imagine your life without your ID or Driver's license!
PLEASE SUPPORT OUR CALIFORNIA ID CAMPAIGN
When people come home after decades in prison, a California ID opens up doors to jobs, housing, healthcare, and other vital services. Not having an ID means not having access to work, a home, or healthcare. This can lead to frustration, hopelessness, and likely plays a role in our current recidivism rate of over 50%.
Our Road Prison Project and other advocacy organizations are working together to ensure that people incarcerated in California State Prisons can receive their California IDs before they leave prison, so that they can start their lives with the ability to work. In the community, getting a California ID or Driver’s license requires documentation that can be difficult to obtain and can also be expensive. The most important documentation to obtain is one’s birth certificate and Social Security Card, this is the first step in getting a California ID or Driver’s license.
Just imagine your life without an ID or Driver’s license. You would be unable to work, drive, have a home, a bank account, or a credit card. Now imagine coming home from prison after decades and not having a California ID. Your donation will help to make a tremendous difference in the lives of people coming home across California. Please support our efforts.
