Stop Slavery Finally!

Tell Congress it is time to end slavery once and for all! Amend the legal flaws in the 13th Amendment authorizing prison slavery. Stop profiteering in its tracks - for the laborer deserves his wages.


PETITION BACKGROUND

Dead Bodies and Billions in Tax Dollars

The secret, dangerous world of private prisons


But the companies have enjoyed a lucrative relationship with the federal government. Since 1997, they’ve been paid billions by the U.S. Bureau of Prisons to annually house more than 34,000 federal inmates. It was a convenient arrangement for a nation with the world’s highest prison population, underpinned by a belief that private corporations could do the job cheaper and better. READ MORE
