Why is this card necessary?

We are asked for photo ID all of the time – entering public buildings, picking our kids up from school, filling a prescription. Yet many of the residents of our Borough face barriers to obtaining government-issued photo ID. Without an ID, residents have had trouble opening a bank account, picking up a package or fear reporting a crime to law enforcement because they lack government issued photo ID. When every resident of our town has access to documentation, we will all be readily identified, feel more secure reporting crimes and will all be safer.
