WINNING TOGETHER We are millions of people taking action for progressive change

In July, CREDO members called on President Obama to end the practice of requiring job seekers to indicate past felony convictions on employment applications. Revealing felony convictions is likely to disqualify applicants. It’s a requirement that disproportionately impacts job opportunities for African-Americans and Latinos, who are convicted and imprisoned at significantly higher rates than whites, often for nonviolent drug-related offenses. In November, the president ordered federal agencies to “ban the box” on federal job applications. Next, Congress must put an end to this insidious job discrimination by banning this question from all employment applications. We’re proud to have donated over $110,000 to ColorOfChange, one of the organizations leading this fight.
