Wells Fargo: Stop Investing in Private Immigrant Detention Centers! #Jan24DIVEST

Tell Wells Fargo: Stop investing in private prisons and immigrant
detention centers

Tuesday, January 24, 5-6 pm
Location: Wells Fargo, Guadalupe & 24th, Austin
A coalition of immigrant-rights groups will call on Wells Fargo to divest
of holdings in the for-profit private prison industry, which is involved in
the detention of immigrants that destroys families and cost taxpayers more
than $1.7 billion this year.

According to SEC filings, Wells Fargo currently holds over 4 million shares
in GEO Group and 50,000 shares in Corrections Corporation of America, with
a combined value of $120 million. Wells Fargo, a recipient of billions of
bailout dollars, is a major contributor to politicians who have championed
the increased incarceration of immigrants. The protest will call on Wells
Fargo to invest in our communities and divest from the private prison
industry.

The protest is endorsed by Grassroots Leadership and Texans United for
Families.  For more information, contactblibal@grassrootsleadership.org. Click here for the facebook event
