A push for fair chance hiring

Jordan Buckley
A diverse alliance of concerned citizens — ranging from local ministers to campus activists to San Martians directly impacted by incarceration — have steadily gathered support for a new anti-discrimination ordinance called Fair Chance Hiring.
The effort is inspired by a resolution passed this spring by the City Council in Austin on a vote of 8-2. The policy — also called “Banning the Box” — shifts background checks to the end of the hiring process, encouraging candidates’ initial consideration based on their merits.
