ECM Joins With Investors in Supporting CORI Reform

Continuing ECM's work to support long term criminal justice reform we recently co-signed a letter that was sent to over 120 businesses and publicly listed companies who operate in Massachusetts urging them to take stock of the new CORI law that went into effect on Nov 4, 2010.

The letter requested these companies to establish non-discrimination policy statements and procedures for qualified applicants with unrelated criminal records. It also offered technical assistance to support these companies as they prepare these new policies.

The letter was sent by Zevin Assessment Management a socially responsible investor based here in Massachusetts and was signed by over 20 local funding entities. To receive a copy of the letter please email kcsimons@diomass.org
