SEATTLE — Seattle is one of the few cities in the country to have a controversial "Ban the Box" ordinance for employers. That's when job applications are forbidden from asking people to "check a box" if they have been convicted of a felony.
One local business has embraced that philosophy for years -- and has become a multimillion dollar company.
Its success story is tonight's Seattle Antifreeze.
After the Aurora Bridge crash, people in our area jumped into action, donating hotel rooms, blood, prayers, challenging Seattleites' reputation for being chilly (the "Seattle Freeze"). It inspired me to pass along stories of when we see people in the community coming together, or what I call #SeattleAntifreeze. If you know a story that should be told, let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org
