Help stop hiring discrimination based on conviction history! Tomorrow, Madison’s Common Council will vote on a resolution supporting the Ban the Box initiative. This resolution contains language that would encourage employers to leave questions regarding criminal history off of applications. They would agree not to ask about criminal history until a conditional offer of employment has been made.
If you would like to support this initiative, you can come to the Common Council meeting Tuesday, September 2 at 6:30pm, room 201 at the City County Building, 210 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd in Madison. Even if you do not wish to speak in support of the resolution, you can fill out a registration card when you get to the meeting and note that you support Ban the Box! Also, consider emailing your alders to let them know why they should support this important resolution.
