Thank you so much for joining the #DriveMichiganForward Week of Action from September 8th-September 13th! Use this toolkit as a reference for what actions are occurring on each day, what our asks are, and how to post about them - both as an individual, and as an allied organization.
Campaign Overview + Why This Matters
Drive Michigan Forward (DMF) is a coalition made up of immigrants and allies. Our goal is to restore driver’s licenses to all and pave the way for basic dignity and security for members of our community. By restoring driver’s licenses to all Michiganders, regardless of immigration status, we can make Michigan a place where everyone has the opportunity to thrive and belong.
The Drive SAFE House Bills 4835 and 4836 and Senate Bills 433 and 434 were reintroduced to the Michigan Legislature Tuesday, May 11th. We've been working hard over the summer and this fall we have a fighting chance at getting Drive SAFE bills into a hearing in the House Rules and Competitiveness Committee. Now, we need to up the momentum and encourage key Michigan representatives to support Drive SAFE House Bills before the legislative session ends!
What is the Week of Action?
As part of the Drive Michigan Forward, we are putting together a five day Week of Action. Our goal is to amplify the campaign and let legislators know that we want our bill to move forward!

No matter our race or place, we all value our freedom - the ability to move around on our own terms. In MI, that means we deserve the right to a driver’s license, regardless of documentation.
