By March 28, 2006No Comments

With the holidays around the corner, YKASEC participated in the “Stop Suspending Immigrants’ License” rally in front of Governor George Pataki’s office in Manhattan.Organized by the New York Coalition for Immigrants’ Rights to Drivers’ License, member organizations, including YKASEC, fought off the freezing weather to request that the governor call off DMV’s decision to verify social security numbers of drivers.Prior to the rally, YKASEC distributed Christmas card-like flyers to community members and collected petition letters, which were presented to the governor in a gift box.Around 200 people participated in this effort.
