Compilation of Media Featuring Fair Chance and Ban the Box

NELP has collected media featuring fair chance policies and accomplishments to help support your efforts in developing effective media for your ban the box or fair chance campaign.  The pieces below provide examples of the types of worker stories, employer voices, and themes throughout op-eds, editorials, and news reports that influence and shape the public debate.  Note that some pieces use terms such as “ex-offenders” or “ex-convicts.”  To reduce stigmatization, NELP recommends working with the media to use terms that lead with “people,” such as “people with records.”
