Preview

People with criminal records suffer from pervasive discrimination in many areas of life—employment, housing, education, and eligibility for many forms of social benefits. In order to mitigate or eliminate discrimination against former prisoners and to assist with their successful reintegration into the community after prison, the Human Rights Commission is being urged to support the All of Us or None effort to eliminate the box requiring disclosure of past criminal records on applications for public employment and for employers doing business with the city and county. The Human Rights Commission of the City and County of San Francisco are also asked to urge the State of California and other cities and counties to eliminate the box requiring disclosure of past criminal records on their public employment applications.
