Ban the Box: The Fight at NYU

This weekend, the Incarceration to Education Coalition held the longest student sit-in since Take Back NYU’s occupation of the Kimmel Center for Student Life in 2009.

WSN stayed in Kimmel for more than 24 hours to cover the negotiations between IEC organizers and NYU administration over banning the box. This issue features an overview of this week’s events leading up to the students acquiring a meeting with the Common Application’s CEO, Paul Mott, and a future meeting with NYU President Hamilton before the end of the semester.
