Our Annual Vigil is in recognition of the dignity of each person as we stand in solidarity with our immigrant sisters and brothers as a powerful collective voice seeking justice for those languishing in detention.

While Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) celebrates their 30 years of existence on the pain and suffering of those needlessly incarcerated, we will wish CCA away. CCA is one of the main beneficiaries of harsh enforcement and detention policies, generating over $46 million in revenue.facebook-event-small

It is time for us to join and collectively say “it’s time to end, not celebrate, for-profit private prisons and immigration detention systems in the United States.”  CCA GO AWAY!!!
