Presbyterian Church Calls to Abolish For-Profit Private Prisons

Resolution Calling for the Abolition of For-Profit Private Prisons

This resolution was developed by the Advisory Committee on Social Witness Policy (ACSWP) and includes an analysis of the arguments for and against for-profit private prisons. The report as a whole was approved by the 215th General Assembly 2003 for churchwide study and implementation. It makes clear that private prisons are not an economic but a deep religious and ethical issue, a cornerstone of our collective work to put justice back into the so-called criminal justice system.
