IF YOU BUILD IT THEY WILL COME!!
Say No to Prison Privatization!
A letter was sent recently to 48 U.S. governors announcing the Corrections Corporation of America's "Investment Initiative" to spend up to $250 million to buy prisons from state, local, and federal governments. The "initiative" requires a minimum commitment of 20 years for the facility, maintaining 90% capacity over the 20-year period. This outrageous offer strikes at the heart of a democracy grounded in human rights.
Who Benefits When A Private Prison Comes To Town?
