Dear Commissioners:
We are writing to you regarding the addition of a Prison for Profit Company contract that will be up vote. Geo Group, a multi -million private prison system has no place in our community. This company is notorious for warehousing and profiting from individuals with uncertain, unspecified, and revoked immigration status. This company is also known for its costly facilitation of the re-entry programs so desperately needed to build up communities that are struggling to transition returning citizens and prevent recidivism. Many of these communities have the capabilities within themselves to organize and facilitate re-entry programs if supported correctly by community leaders. As a person who has experienced the inside, outside, and in between of these prison for profit systems, I urge you to reconsider the facilitation of Offender Re-entry in our community. Societal problems should never become a market for profiteers. Please see the attached petition and its supporters to help guide our community in a localized direction that is cost efficient, humane, and community centered. Thank you for letting our voices be heard!
Sincerely,
Jennifer Colon and friends
