Driver's License for All

Event Description

Hybrid Event- Choose your participation at registration

Minnesota recently passed the "Driver’s License for All" law, which allows individuals regardless of legal immigration status to obtain a MN driver’s license or Identification card. The law became effective on Oct. 1, 2023. In this CLE, we will discuss the history and development of this new law. We will explore how this new legislation will benefit everyone living in the great state of MN. We will also address privacy protections that were put in place to encourage immigrants from a wide variety of countries, educational backgrounds, and socio-economic classes to actually take advantage of this new law.  While some have expressed concerns that a newly enacted automatic voter registration law will register noncitizens to vote, we will address protections put in place both to protect the vote and to protect immigrants from inadvertent registration.  We will address how this legislation is intended to create a more inclusive environment for all residents of MN.
