June 5, 2018 — Workers and allies from the Freedom Cities movement will be protesting on today at the annual REITWeek investor conference against the tax breaks and profits prison companies and lenders receive for criminalizing communities of color and immigrants. REITWeek will be attended by private prison companies CoreCivic and GEO Group, and sponsored by their major lenders JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo. Today, these companies will also have to face protest by the Black and Brown communities they lobby to incarcerate, who are demanding that Congress revoke REIT for this parasitic industry.
