When people can’t afford thousands of dollars in tickets, Chicago slams residents with excessive #FinesandFees, then takes their driver’s licenses if they fall behind on payments. But no license = no way to work = no way out of debt. We believe in fair and equitable policies that support all families regardless of their income level. That's why we're advocating for the #License2Work Act. Learn more at license2work.org #DrivenIntoDebt #StopSuspendingLives
