The City of Portland will hold a hearing on a Ban the Box Ordinance on Wednesday, March 11th at 3:00pm.
When it passes, thousands of people with previous arrest and conviction histories will have a Fair Chance to secure a job that will enable them to support their families and communities.
We have the opportunity NOW to add Portland to the growing list of cities and states that have passed legislation to Ban the Box – providing a Fair Chance for All to jobs and economic security. We can pass this in the City of Portland and then onward to passage in the State Legislature.
Help us pack the City Council chambers!
