Having an ID can give people access to many different services. But what are those services and who might be barred from them if they don’t have an official ID? What role does a municipal ID play?
Students from Irving Estella’s ESL class at the Academy of Urban Planning in Bushwick, Brooklyn worked with CUP Teaching Artist Raúl Ayala to clear things up. They interviewed people on the streets and a lawyer from Make the Road NY to find out more about how people use IDs. With the information they collected, they created a booklet to share what they learned.
