We believe that we are not the worst of our mistakes. Visit these businesses on Thursday, July 19, 2018 and buy their products or services! This is an all-day affair.

Fair Chance Business Certification celebrates businesses across the South that give people a second chance and hire based on the qualifications of the applicants, rather than their criminal record. Fair Chance Hiring is an incredibly impactful practice to take on, especially considering that one third of Americans have a criminal record.

We want to celebrate these businesses for believing that we are not the worst of our mistakes by showing our utmost support and gratitude for believing in the Fair Chance Business Certification.

So come out on Thursday, July 19, 2018 and support these local businesses with your dollars and buy their products or services:

Ben & Jerry’s
Durham Co-op Market
The Durham Ritz Car Wash & Detail Center
Men at Work Car Care Center
The Parlour
