AB1008 (McCarty) will remove barriers to employment for millions of Californians with conviction histories. We already have Ban the Box policies in the public sector—AB1008 will extend Fair Chance Hiring to private employers, allowing people access to meaningful employment and opportunity to support their families, pay taxes, and contribute to their communities.
Join John Legend, Michelle Alexander, Bryan Stevenson, and call Gov. Brown 916.445.2841 & urge him to sign AB1008 the Ban the Box / Fair Chance Hiring bill before the Oct. 15 deadline!
Feel free to distribute these through your social media networks:
And thank YOU for taking the time to support AB 1008 (McCarty) and all the current and formerly incarcerated people and our family members.
Keep up the fight!
