Join Community Organizations Standing Against Wells Fargo’s Racist Investments #Jan24DIVEST

Jan 24th – National Day of Action against Wells Fargo!

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Time 12:00pm until 2:00pm

900 SW 5th Ave, Portland, OR

 On November 17th, 9 members of PCASC were arrested for standing in opposition to Wells Fargo’s investment in private prisons.

Wells Fargo invests in private prison companies, GEO Group and Corrections Corporation of America (CCA). These companies fund the writing & passing of racist and oppressive laws which criminalize communities of color in order to fill their prisons for maximized profit.

On January 24th we return to Wells Fargo to demand the divestment of stock in private prisons. It’s a national day of action against Wells Fargo.

Join us along with other community organizations as we stand against Wells Fargo’s racist investments.

The Private 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.
