Private Prisons Are NOT the Answer to California's Overcrowded Prisons

To be delivered to The California State House, The California State Senate, and Governor Jerry Brown

Petition Statement

Don't let private prison companies profit from California's overcrowded prison crisis! Now is the time to fund efforts that decrease the prison population, not line the pockets of private prison company executives and their shareholders.
There are currently 484 signatures. NEW goal - We need 500 signatures!

Petition Background

Over the past 30 years, for-profit prison companies have reaped billions in profits from the mass incarceration and detention of human beings while earning a track record marred with mismanagement, human rights abuses, and indifference for the health and safety of those incarcerated in their facilities. At a time when many states are walking away from outsourced prisons, California Governor Jerry Brown is seeking to expand the use of for-profit prisons to alleviate the state's current prison overcrowding crisis. Join us in urging Governor Brown to invest in sustainable solutions to mass incarceration in California and NOT in private prison companies that profit from pain!
