The Membership & ID Drive is an event in which we focus on offering the opportunity to become a member of our organization, and thus continue to educate, advocate and celebrate with our community. At the same time, we provide an alternative identification that could help our community obtain access to basic services where identification is required.


In our community, there is a great need to have an alternative identification since It is required in order to have access to health resources, financial institutions and to other basic services.

A community identification is different from other types of identifications we have seen in public facilities, as it is supported by Faith Action NC. Although it is not a government ID, the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD) is aware of the requirements we request for such identification.Spanish speaking police officers will be present during the event to answer concerns from the community about this or other topics.

We clarify that this identification does not replace a driver's license and it is not the duty of a police officer to accept it as such.



1. Participate in one of the informative workshops about your rights. "Know Your Rights" The workshops will be that same day at these times:  9:00AM / 10:30AM / 12:00PM

2. Bring a proof of government identification. As: Passport, consular registration, foreign identification, state driver's license even if it is expired.

3. Proof of residence, present a document that proofs your current address for the past 3 months such as receipt of utilities(light, or water bill), lease agreement, bank account statements, medical files etc. . .

4. Membership value starts from $ 10.00 or $ 35.00 and includes identification.

There are no appointments available, we will help on a first come first served basis.
