Stop For-profit #Incarceration

DF_j3zxUQAE40fW

 

Privatization is not the answer, especially in the prison sector. As a nation, we’ve gone from championing each citizen’s day in court to bailouts for the wealthy while lower- and middle-class citizens go to jail.

It’s far past the time to stop corporations from taking advantage of our citizens in exorbitant bail and for-profit prisons.

Stop the corporate hold on citizens’ lives and support The Reverse Mass Incarceration Act of 2017 by contacting your local, city, state and federal representatives. Ask your representatives to support the new Senate Bill because it creates incentives to reduce mass incarceration.

Money will determine whether the accused goes to prison or walks out of the courtroom a free man. – Johnnie Cochran
