Tell the private prison industry: Black bodies are not for sale

For-profit companies are making a killing from our broken prison system — raking in billions from longer and harsher terms of confinement that disproportionately locks up Black folks and immigrants. Private prison conditions are some of the most dangerous in the country. In order to maximize profits, companies like CCA, GEO Group, and MTC cut back on staff training, medical care, and rehabilitative services, while spending millions lobbying governments to keep their prisons filled at a high cost to taxpayers and public safety.
We can stop this. Please join us in urging investors and board members of for-profit prison companies to get out of this exploitative business.
