Policies that restrict access to US government-issued IDs exacerbate barriers to health-promoting resources that are increasingly contingent upon having ID, heighten racialized day-to-day stressors, and contribute to broader institutional processes of exclusion. Multiple marginalized communities, including racial minority, low-income, and immigrant communities, are disproportionately affected. Increasingly, county and municipal governments are implementing local government-issued IDs to improve access to health-promoting resources for all residents. This presentation provides an overview of a community-academic partnership process to support the implementation and evaluate the effectiveness of the Washtenaw ID, which became available to all residents of Washtenaw County, Michigan in 2015. Following a discussion of the evaluation process, the presentation will conclude with a discussion of lessons learned, as well as ways in which local government-issued IDs may partially disrupt the links between racializing policies and health equity.
