Partnership teams up with NELP to Ban the Box and put our communities back to work!

November 27, 2013 -- Partnership for Working Families

Now more than ever, low-income communities of color need a foothold in the economy. The Partnership and our colleagues at National Employment Law Project (NELP) have teamed up to share policy tools for removing barriers and gaining access to job opportunities for those who need them most. On October 23, NELP and the Partnership hosted “Putting Our Communities Back to Work: targeted hire and ban the box policies,” a webinar attended by hundreds of people in cities across the country. The webinar highlighted targeted hiring and ban the box measures that can make a real difference to struggling job seekers and lifted up a recent victory in Oakland where these measures were put in place.
