Thousands of immigrants across Pennsylvania are forced to drive without a license to work and live. This needs to change.  At the 2021 Convention for the Diocese of Central Pennsylvania, we agreed to support the Driving PA Forward Coalition – a statewide campaign to secure a standard driver’s license for all Pennsylvanians regardless of immigration status. This action will support families, workers, businesses, and make our roads safer.
