DC history made July 14

In Making History – and Making History Work DC Jobs Council director Marina Streznewski explains the value of the recently passed Ban the Box legislation.

The highlights for me, though, are:

This bill is notable, too, for the quality and character of the negotiations that have brought us to this day.


Cooperation at this unprecedented level was possible because Coalition members and Chamber representatives came to a profound realization – we agreed that returning citizens deserve a fair chance at a job.

Take a moment to read the (beautifully written) piece by Streznewski.
