Gabriela Sheehan of Jewish Family Services and Michelle Lopez of the Berkshire Immigrant Center will discuss information on the resettlement or refugees in the Berkshires when Berkshire Business and Professional Women holds it monthly meeting virtually on Monday.

Berkshire Immigrant Center staff say that state laws, and the lack of public transportation options, force undocumented immigrants to drive unlicensed or miss out on basic needs. Massachusetts would join Connecticut, New York, Vermont and 13 other states in allowing residents to apply for a license ,regardless of immigration status, under a bill co-authored by state Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier, D-Pittsfield.
