“New York University. An institution vested in a city that represents inclusion, unity, and equality supports a question which contradicts the very essence of the people it so called represents. The “box”, or the criminal background question on the admission application, sends the message that no one truly has “time served” or had paid their “debt” to society. I support banning the box because as an advocate for social justice I understand that order for those who have criminal histories to truly become productive and pay their “debt” to society, they/we must all be included in it. Educational equality is essential for the prosperity of all cultures.”
