SAMPLE SCRIPT:

Dear Council Member ______________,

I’m a constituent and the issue of Municipal ID is very important to me. Access to a Municipal ID allows immigrant, homeless, and other marginalized populations more equitable participation in society.

I support a Municipal ID program that guarantees the following:

  • CONTROL: A public ID that is of the city and directed by the city–not privatized, which would cause privacy concerns.
  • PRIORITY: A Municipal ID is urgent and we want a passing vote before June 2018.
  • ACCESS: The city needs to come to our communities and speak our languages.
  • SECURITY: The city must be responsible for destroying all data after 6 months.
  • RECIPROCITY: We want agreements with other cities to recognize our Municipal ID. However, we should not wait for reciprocity to pass Municipal ID.
  • CONFIDENCE: The Municipal ID must be a plastic card with a loadable magnetic strip, not a technological device
  • FUNDING: Municipal ID program must be funded at a minimum rate of $100,000 per year

    “Will you vote to support the creation and implementation of a Minneapolis Municipal ID program – yes or no?”

    Note: We need to keep track of yes’es and no’s. If the councilperson says anything like “it depends.” then the follow up question should be, “What specifically does your vote depend on?” We then need to capture those responses verbatim as much as possible so we can follow up on getting their concerns quickly answered.

    With your strong support and attention to the above aspects of Municipal ID, Minneapolis can be a leader in supporting our immigrant communities. Thank you!
