NJ Leaders Rally Behind Proposed ‘Ban the Box’ Bill in Princeton

NJ Leaders Rally Behind Proposed ‘Ban the Box’ Bill in Princeton

Thursday, on the patio outside of the Princeton Public Library, Princeton Mayor Liz Lempert, Ewing Mayor Bert Steinmann, and several other state leaders were joined by Princeton junior Joel Simwinga, all rallying support for the Opportunity to Compete Act or “Ban the Box,” reported nj.com.
