Date:  09-04-2013

Schools, churches, cities, and others with money in private prison companies asked to divest
Release from Nation Inside

Enlace, in partnership with community groups and unions across the US, is calling on all public and private institutions to divest their holdings in Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) and GEO Group, America’s largest private prison corporations which have profited from billions in taxpayer money.

27 financial investor companies provide capital for the private prison industry to lobby for contracts and the criminalization of our communities. Public institutions that we are each connected to--our schools, cities, churches, and pension funds--invest with these 27 mega-private prison investors.
