Alexis Fernandes started this petition to Federal Bureau of Prisons

Problem
America's toxic prison industry has little regard for where its facilities are located even if that means building on harmful polluted grounds. A majority of low income and minority prisoners are coming in healthy and leaving ill. This is a result of building prisons on environmentally toxic sites such as old coal mining grounds, mountaintop removal grounds, mines, landfills, and Superfund sites. The united states contain 5% of the world's population, but 25 percent of the world’s prisoners. Americas increasing prison industry has maintained social inequality for decades. Please sign the petition to help us expose toxic prisons.

Solution
Stand with environmental justice advocates and communities to change toxic prison industries nationwide. Target the Bureau of Prisons to acknowledge and change environmentally unsound prisons across the country.
