Valley Nonprofit Announces ID Strategy in Parishes
BROWNSVILLE – A local nonprofit announced a new strategy this week.
With 19 institutions, Valley Interfaith will be providing identification cards to parish members as a way to identify themselves to law enforcement.
The ID will have your name, picture, date of birth, address and how long you’ve been a member of your parish.
A lead member of Valley Interfaith says any institution will be welcomed to implement this strategy, not just the Catholic Church, but also the Methodist, Baptist churches, and any school or school district.
As of now, police departments in Edinburg, McAllen and Pharr have agreed to recognize the ID as a valid form of identification.
