Families Say, “Let Our Dads Drive!” at Father’s Day March and Rally To Be Held For Expanded Access to Driver’s Licenses in Woodbridge
At least a 168,000 New Jersey children have at least one parent who cannot access a state-issued driver’s licenses
WOODBRIDGE, NJ– On Father’s Day, Sunday, June 16th, 2019, children, fathers, and supporters will rally and march in Woodbridge to call on legislators to pass legislation for expanded access to driver’s licenses.
Rally will kick-off at Woodbridge City Hall and march in front of Assembly Speaker Coughlin’s office calling for the immediate passage for legislation A4743/S3229 that would expand access to more than 719,000 more residents, benefitting thousands of families in the state.
When parents and providers are unable to access a driver’s licenses, the entire family loses mobility. Children have trouble participating in sports, extracurriculars, and getting to necessary appointments when parents are not able to drive them.
Advocates are urging legislators to pass the legislation before heading to Summer break on June 30th.
WHAT: Children and families will march and share their experience of life in New Jersey without access to a driver’s license urging legislators to take action to pass A4743/S3229 now
WHERE: Woodbridge City Hall, 1 Main St, Woodbridge, NJ 07095
