Panel Discussion: Cashing In on Incarceration

  • Urban Justice Center 40 Rector Street New York, NY, 10006 United States (map)

Private prisons are not the only corrections facilities exposed to commercialization. Even in public prisons, private companies are turning huge profits on everything from healthcare to transportation with terrible ramifications for incarcerated people.

On this panel we discuss strategies for decommercializing criminal justice, starting with New York City’s recent decision to divest from private prison companies.
