A fair chance at employment: A conversation with Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) and Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) – Antitrust shouldn’t be personal or political17th May 2019
One of the most daunting tasks for formerly incarcerated individuals reentering society has been to secure employment. In an effort to reduce recidivism and expand opportunity, cities and states across the country have passed “Ban the Box” policies, which ban questions about arrests and criminal records from the early stages of job application procedures. How can these reforms be replicated at the federal level to reduce barriers to employment for individuals reentering society?
Please join AEI for a conversation with House Committee on Oversight and Reform Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) and House Committee on the Judiciary Ranking Member Doug Collins (R-GA), cosponsors of the Fair Chance Act, as they discuss how their bill would help rehabilitated men and women gain meaningful employment, followed by an expert panel.
Join the conversation on social media with @AEI on Twitter and Facebook.
