“I support banning the box on all college application. Advance education is a right that should not be denied because of past criminal justice history. Especially in an era when incarceration has impacted whole communities, the explicit discrimination against former incarcerated people in effect creates a legal Jim Crow system of exclusion. For the rebuilding of communities, families, and lives, access to college during and after prison should be an education goal we all share.”
