“I will see you all on the road” — Undocumented API leaders encourage community members to seize opportunity of AB 60 licenses

Oakland – A diverse alliance of local organizations serving Chinese, Korean, and Filipino communities gathered at Oakland’s Asian Resource Center today to raise awareness of the opportunity offered by California’s Safe and Responsible Driver Act (AB 60), which allows undocumented Californians to apply for a driver’s license.

Sonny Villar, an 11-year resident of California and leader with Filipino Advocates for Justice, spoke in both English and Tagalog of his struggles as a caregiver and how obtaining an AB 60 license will transform his life.

“This is my dream, to have a driver’s license and have the ability to go where we want to go,” Villar stated. “As soon as I heard about getting a license, I went and got a birth certificate and copy of my passport. I recommend for everyone who is going to get a license to prepare themselves. And I suggest that people study very hard, because you can’t get a license if you don’t pass the test.” (Detailed document requirements are available¬†here.)

Villar concluded his remarks to applause as he declared, “I will see you all on the road.”
