Demand Democracy & Confront Private Prison Corruption

It's time to DEMAND DEMOCRACY and CONFRONT CORRUPTION in the for-profit PRIVATE PRISONS here in San Diego.
 
Corporations like CoreCivic and TheGeoGroup are being sued for abusing immigrants in their care, separating families, and taking their children away.
 
We cannot remain silent as the Trump Administration detains immigrants in private detention facilities, and separates children from the only people they know in a new country.
 
Many of these adults and children are being held in private detention facilities, like the one owned by CoreCivic in Otay Mesa. CoreCivic makes profits by incarcerating people. They are being sued for abusing inmates in their care.
 
Also: CoreCivic and TheGeoGroup spend millions every year to contribute to political candidates & lobby elected officials, with the goal of influencing incarceration policy and increasing their profits.
 
This has lead to laws and policies that criminalize the poorest people in our communities and ultimately leads to mass incarceration.
 
Join the Overpass Light Brigade, San Diego Women's Drum Circle, and activists from throughout San Diego County to learn what you can do to end this campaign financing by the private prison complex.
 
We will MEET & RALLY at 7:00 PM, near Second Avenue & Elm Street, to hold a vigil with the Overpass Light Brigade.
 
The Overpass Light Brigade will display a simple message: CONFRONT CORRUPTION
  
Wear white or light clothing, and bring banners & signs with appropriate themes and message:
 
DEFUND Private Prisons | DIVEST From the Prison Industry | Families Belong Together
 
STOP Criminalizing Poverty | Build colleges- not prisons |
 
It's time to Fight POVERTY not POOR PEOPLE
