ACLU award goes to Vt. immigrants' rights group

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- The Vermont chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union has presented its annual David W. Curtis Civil Liberties Award to the group Migrant Justice.

The immigrants' rights group successfully lobbied for the right to drive in Vermont for workers in the country without the required federal documents.

The award was presented at the ACLU's annual meeting in Montpelier. Director Allen Gilbert said gaining the right to get special drivers' licenses meant many workers on Vermont dairy farms would have transportation and be less isolated.

Natalia Fajardo ('nah-TAH-yah fa-HARD-tho'), field coordinator with Migrant Justice, thanked the ACLU for its help with the Statehouse lobbying effort.
