Stand with Bernie Against Private Prisons
Add Your Name:
Today in America, shamefully, we have more people in jail than any other country on earth. We must recreate our criminal justice system, but we cannot do that as long as corporations are allowed to profit from mass incarceration.
I have recently introduced legislation that will put an end to for-profit prisons. My bill will bar federal, state, and local governments from contracting with private companies who manage prisons, jails, or detention facilities.
It is wrong to profit from the imprisonment of human beings and the suffering of their families and friends. It’s time to end this morally repugnant process, and along with it, the era of mass incarceration.
Add your name to stand with me against the private prison system profiting from human suffering.
Thank you for your support.
