CitySquare Issue: Ban The Box

Victory! As of Thursday, May 25, HB577, the statewide pre-emption that would have forbid local governments from passing Ban-the-Box legislation in Texas, is dead. CitySquare is proud to have worked with organizations across the state to oppose this bill and we thank our many supporters here and Dallas for lending their voices to the cause. Though we won this battle, the fight continues to protect vulnerable populations and pass Fair Hiring practices at the state and national level. You can still help us fight by tweeting, emailing or calling Dallas Representative Jason Villalba to voice your support in writing.
