FORUM ON "FAIR CHANCE" HIRING POLICY

A forum will be held on Sunday, Oct. 2 regarding a rising push locally for San Marcos to follow in Austin's footsteps by adopting a Fair Chance Hiring ordinance: An anti-discrimination policy that moves background checks to the end of the hiring process, enabling candidates' consideration based first on their merits, without the initial stigma of a conviction history. The San Marcos Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will host Lewis Conway, Jr., the Criminal Justice Program Associate for Grassroots Leadership, at 9:30 a.m.
