It will be illegal for companies to refuse to hire an individual due to his or her criminal history.
I believe that a true Leader/President should takes care of its citizens, invests in its communities, and stands up for justice. I will prioritize education, healthcare, and economic opportunity while being a responsible steward of our environment. I will strive to create an equitable and inclusive future for all Texans. I will listen to the voices of those who have been historically marginalized and ensure their needs are met. I will focus on building a strong and vibrant Texas for generations to come.
I will pass a law that prevents companies from turning you away based on your criminal record. This law will help to mitigate the effects of the criminal justice system, which disproportionately affects people of color and other marginalized communities. It will also provide job opportunities for those with a criminal record, allowing them to contribute to society and build a better future for themselves and their families. Furthermore, it will create a more equitable and inclusive environment, as employers will no longer be able to use a criminal record as a way to discriminate against potential employees.
