Prison Industry Divestment Campaign
Anti immigrant laws, like Arizona’s SB 1070 and Georgia’s HB 87, are not only a consequence of racism but also of the greed for money. It is a huge business to criminalize and incarcerate our communities because the federal government pays private prison companies a average of $122 per day per person in prison. Private Prison Companies like Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) and the GEO Group have influenced politicians to pass laws that criminalize communities of color to increase the prison population for more profit. These companies are making millions from incarcerating our loved ones. Those who benefit are companies (shareholders) that invest in the prison industry. Our government is building more prisons while cutting social services and schools, all with tax payer money. This is why Enlace has launched the Prison Industry Divestment Campaign to convince shareholders (banks, hedge funds, etc) to divest their funds from the prison industry so that we can make an impact on the prison business and reducing the power of CCA and GEO to lobby for laws that imprison our communities.
