Illinois Representatives Cassidy and Ford of the House Restorative Justice Committee will convene a subject matter hearing on December 9, 2014 to build greater legislative awareness of the barriers to employment - including lifetime bars - that men and women with records experience in the school, park district, and metro transit codes and the Health Care Worker Background Check Act. Testimony will include men and women with records telling their stories along with legal experts and employers who have hired individuals with records. Members of the Judiciary Committee are also expected to participate. Please attend to show support for this important legislation.
The hearing will take place at the Michael Bilandic Building, 160 N LaSalle, Room 600 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.
