“Banning the box will remove a huge barrier to employment and provide job seekers with opportunities to find family supporting jobs which will grow our local economy, strengthen our communities and reduce poverty,” says 9to5 Wisconsin member Rhonda Willette.

Our Wisconsin chapter is doing great work around #BanTheBox!
“As an organizer with 9to5 Wisconsin, I work with a huge population of women who are struggling to turn their lives around; to get and keep jobs after returning from prison.”-Nancy Yarbrough, 9to5 WI Chapter Organizer.
