Green Light NY
We Won Equal Access to Driver's Licenses for All New Yorker's Regardless of Immigration status!
The Green Light NY Coalition, lead by the directly impacted Gabinete and Steering Committee, is made up of over 300 organizations. After years of campaigning, on June 17, 2019 the New York State legislature passed A03675/S1747, also known as the Green Light Bill.
Columbia County Sanctuary Movement serves as regional coordinator for Upper Hudson Valley and Capital District. CCSM members Maria Romero and Dalila Yeend helped transform the narrative and lead the campaign locally. CCSM organized tremendous support from community members, elected officials, farmers and the business community.
We won legislation, now we must ensure fair and timely Implementation.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Licenses for all New Yorker's regardless of immigration status will not be available until December. There have been reports of Notarios and other people trying to scam our community by offering licenses. Please contact CCSM if you know of and/or are a victim of one of these scams.
