Oakland City ID and Debit Card for All Residents

From Alianza Latinoamericana por los Derechos de los Inmigrantes:

Join us to support the immediate implementation of the Oakland City ID/Debit Card.
 
Oakland City Council will be voting on Oakland ID, which will benefit undocumented immigrants, homeless, and transgender people. Please come to support it on:
Tuesday, December 20th at 5:30 PM  (Item #10 on the agenda)
 
As you may know The Alianza Latino Americana por los Derechos de los Inmigrantes, ALIADI, has been working exhaustively educating about the multiple functions and benefits, that the implementation of a such program can bring to different sectors of our communities.
 
For many years our communities have been suffering, for lack of an official ID Card, of racial profiling, arrests without justification, deportation, family disintegration and have became targets of criminals who have killed immigrants whom for lack of an ID/Debit Card carry large amounts of money.

We consider that most of Oakland City Council Members are concerned about the lives and social integration of communities at risk, but we also want to be very clear that the few council members who have delayed the program are not helping prevent the problems and critical situations that our communities have faced the past 3 years, when discussion about the card program began.
 
 The Oakland City ID Card will:
Serve as proof of identity and residency
Include information about the card holder’s medical conditions or allergies
List an emergency contact
Provide discounts on San Francisco family excursions, restaurants, museums, and more
Be used as a public library card
Serve as a debit card
We want the immediate implementation of the Oakland City ID/Debit Card!

Alianza Latinoamericana por los Derechos de los Inmigrantes (ALIADI) is a network of community members throughout California who share information and resources to uphold the rights and social integration of our immigrant community.  www.aliadi.org
