Prof. S. David Mitchell was recently interviewed on HuffPost Live in a segment called “Disclosing A Criminal Record When Job Hunting”, where he discussed the “Ban the Box” movement, and by the Columbia Daily Tribune in “Ban the box’ legislation aims to reduce recidivism through employment” about the recommendation from the Mayor’s Task Force on Violence that the City of Columbia adopt “Ban the Box” legislation.

The “Ban the Box” movement advocates for the removal of the question “Have you ever been convicted of a felony?” from employment applications.
