Remove Damon Hininger from the Belmont Board of Trustees

In our current political climate, we know that civic engagement can drastically change the course of policy decisions. Recent news has been filled with horror stories of the injustices occurring to individuals seeking asylum in our nation on our southern border. It has recently come to my attention that Damon Hininger, a member of the Belmont Board of Trustees and a former Massey Award recipient is not someone I believe we want associated with Belmont University. Mr. Hininger is the CEO of a Nashville based company called CoreCivic. CoreCivic is one of two major private prison companies that is currently housing detained families at our southern border. This company is profiting off of one of largest ethics crises that our nation has ever seen. Personally, I am shocked that Belmont, a Christian school, would want anything to do with Mr. Hininger or CoreCivic. As individuals associated with Belmont University and the Nashville community, we deserve a say in who represents our school, and Mr. Hininger clearly does not represent the values that our school claims to embody. If you are as appalled by his involvement on our campus as I am, please sign this  petition, and share this message.
