Orange County Justice United in North Carolina won an agreement from District Attorney James Woodall that has the potential to save Latino drivers tens of thousands of dollars a year in court fines and fees.

A year-long issue campaign culminated in a 600 person action on March 28, 2017 where the District Attorney publicly committed to a deferral program for unlicensed yet otherwise safe drivers. The program will assist Latino drivers in Orange and Chatham County who have paid roughly $1.3 million in citations after a change in state policy in 2006 rendered them ineligible to apply for or renew their licenses without a social security number.
