I have great news from the State of Georgia! The link below is the Georgia Executive Order to BAN THE BOX signed yesterday (02/23/15) by Governor Nathan Deal (R). RIHD's Executive Director, Lillie Branch-Kennedy and I were at the Georgia State House last month to support the incredible effort on the ground to ban the odious box of employment discrimination in Georgia. We salute the courage of the Governor of Georgia and our friends and colleagues in Georgia who fought gallantly for this change. NOW WE NEED OUR OWN GOVERNOR TERRY MCAULIFFE TO SHOW LEADERSHIP AND COURAGE BY SIGNING A SIMILAR ORDER TO BAN THE BOX IN VIRGINIA.
GOV. NATHAN DEAL ISSUED THE EXECUTIVE ORDER TO BAN THE BOX!
