Getting an ID is a great way to get involved with the Washtenaw ID Project. We do not want this card to be carried solely by those who need it, but rather all members of our community. Regardless of whether or not you already have a valid form of photo ID, carrying and using this card will serve as a means of standing in solidarity with those affected and marginalized community members. Do not let your friends and neighbors stand alone!
