Join us Wednesday, April 29, 2015 to protest the GEO Group. Meet at us at 855 South Federal HighwayBoca Raton, FL 33432.
GEO Group is the second largest for-profit prison operator in the nation – and their headquarters is located in Boca Raton, FL. GEO makes millions of dollars every year…but only if the prison beds are filled. GEO has been responsible for laws and policy that have criminalized black, asian, latinos, and immigrants- increasing the prison population.
Join us May 2nd to protest the shameful detention of mothers and children in the "South Texas Residential Center" in Dilley, TX.

Join us May 3- 5 in Boca Raton, FL for a national gathering to end on mass incarceration and immigration enforcement. The For Profit Prions Industry is behind the growing criminalization of Black, Asian, and Latino communities.
The convening will feature educational and training workshops, a massive action against prison profiteers, and a national strategy session.
NATIONAL ACTIONS AGAINST THE FOR PROFIT PRISON INDUSTRY
From April 19th to May 5th we will be taking action to end mass incarceration and immigration enforcement. The For Profit Prison Industry actively works to increase criminalization of immigrants
and people of color and makes billions in profit by locking us up. Join us!
The goal of the Week of Engagement is to take the Prison Divestment Campaign to local communities, and provide communities with concrete local actions they can take to use their power and move their capital—their taxes, tuition dollars, or their pensions—out of the prison industry.
Find an action near you and join us on Twitter April 23rd @ 2:30pm EST using the #PrisonDivest
Leaders and youth with the Power U Center for Social Change and Enlace will be leading a action at the GEO Head Quarters to make sure that our collective voices are heard!
The for profit prison lobby is behind the criminalization of immigrants & people of color.
Join us and other Freedom Fighters from across the country to Demand People OVER Profit! #BlackLivesMatter #BlackandBrownUnity #PeopleOverProfit #DivestinPrisons #ReinvestInCommunity
