Campaign Updates

ENLACE-POSTER_outline_campaign11x85The Prison Industry Divestment Campaign began in 2008 to address the root causes of harm to communities of color caused by the Criminal and Immigration System.

Our demands include: Abolish Prisons, Free All Immigrants in Detention, End Deportations & Raids, Demilitarize the Border, and Legalization for All.

The campaign targets the State and Corporations as root causes of criminalization, incarceration, and violence against our communities. We have waged successful campaigns against Politicians, Wall St, Banks, and Prison Industry Corporations.

Our research has followed how the State and Corporations have expanded prisons to our homes through electronic shackles and other forms of prisons, and the connections between Police, ICE, and Border Patrol.

The Campaign has since become a national movement bringing together Black, Brown, and LGBTQ communities to divest from criminalization and incarceration, and demand reparations and investment in our communities!

Enlace works to create a world where safety means investment in people & planet and to end the punishment-based criminal and immigration systems. For additional information visit Enlace’s webpage

The Prison Industry Divestment Movement is part of a larger movement called #FreedomCities that is building multiracial power at the local level by redefining what Safety and Freedom mean for our communities.
