Ban The Box

On February 16, CCRC sent an email to selected members of the State Legislature expressing our support for an amendment to SB 1069. This amendment was introduced by State Rep. Martin Quezada (D-LD 29) to add a “Ban the Box” provision and allow Arizona to join 15 other States with this provision. As you know, “Ban the Box” would remove the question form job application firms that asks “…have you ever been arrested or convicted of a felony.” The employer will still be able to ask this question only after the person has been given a job offer and references are being checked. The amendment was approved in committee and is moving forward.

Upcoming Meeting – Feb 23

Agenda

Welcome and Introductions

Rachel Beaty, Education and Outreach Specialist, Southwest Fair Housing Council: Rachel will provide us an overview of recent guidance from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) centering on the applications of Fair Housing Act standards to the use of criminal records by providers of housing and real estate-related transactions.

Chair’s Report: Tom Reardon will present a summary of CCRC activities since the last meeting.
