Scott County Community ID moves forward!
PACG's Civil Rights Forum is proud to support the work of Quad Cities Interfaith on the issue of community IDs for the county. Please read their letter below. And, if you have not already signed their petition, please do so here. This is an important program.
Scott County officials agree to move forward with the Scott County Community ID! After meeting with Supervisor Ken Beck, County Administrator Mahesh Sharma, and Assistant County Administrator Mary Thee, they have agreed to move forward with the Scott County Community ID. This is a huge step forward for the Scott County Community ID and our organizing!
So what's next? County officials committed to having the necessary conversations with the County Attorney and the rest of the County Supervisors as Scott County Supervisors will have to officially vote to pass the Scott County Community ID. This means we still need to make sure incoming elected officials say YES when it comes time to vote.
So we are not done yet! We need to continue our efforts now more than ever to see this critical program through and to make sure it is best designed for the people who need it the most.
We continue to work with directly impacted people and our community partners to make sure we have a say in the creation of this program from start to finish. We will meet again with Scott County to solidify details and to make sure the voices of the directly impacted are at the table.
We still need YOU to take action with us. Sign and share our letter of support below, which has 27 institutional supporters!
