July 1st National Day of Action in solidarity with Georgia

July 1st National Day of Action in Solidarity with Georgia

On July 1st the Arizona copycat law HB87 is set to be implemented in Georgia. Just like last year when SB 1070 was signed into law in Arizona, once again the private prison industry has played a powerful force in lobbying for anti-immigrant legislation for profit.  Private Prisons and their major investors made contributions to the GA Governor, GA Attorney General, and the sponsor of HB87, among other key politicians.

Enlace and community partners across the US involved in the National Prison Industry Divestment Campaign are calling for a National Day of Action on July 1st in solidarity with Georgia. Repeal HB87! We will not comply!

The National Prison Industry Divestment Campaign is working to expose the profiteering of Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) and the GEO Group, the biggest private prison companies in the US, who are making millions off the separation and incarceration of immigrants and communities of color at the expense of our tax dollars. We are calling on all prison shareholders to divest from the prison industry. End the deportations and the raids! Abolish Prisons! Free All Immigrants in Detention! Legalization Now!
