Project Description: Moving US forward is a research effort to study the implications of SB-251 driver’s licenses (for immigrants who cannot prove lawful presence or can only prove temporary lawful presence). We studied macro-level effects in different aspects of public health and safety. As well as individual testimonies of SB-251 license recipients and activists. Since Colorado started implementing this program in 2014, it has become a model for other states that are following suit.
