Abolish Private Prisons in Colorado

To be delivered to The Colorado State House, The Colorado State Senate, and Governor John Hickenlooper

Petition Statement

We believe that no one should profit from the incarceration of human beings. Abolish for-profit prisons and immigrant detention centers in Colorado.
There are currently 5,608 signatures. NEW goal - We need 7,500 signatures!

Petition Background

Privatization erodes public control and oversight. Nowhere is privatization more insidious than in the corporate takeover of our criminal justice and immigrant detention systems. For-profit corporations own and run hundreds of prisons, jails, and detention centers in this country. For these companies, every prisoner is a profit center, every crime a business opportunity, and rehabilitation is bad for business
