Mon – 3/11: We are Tucker-ed out. Put on your super hero capes, pull out your keyboards and phones and ask corporate America to step up.

Action #1 – Use your power for good. Stop the financial machine behind the privitization of imprisonment.

Good news for resistors! You have power in the commercial world. Constant public pressure has caused JPMorgan Chase to announce that the bank would no longer finance private-prison and immigrant-detention companies. Others, like Wells Fargo, Bank of America and SunTrust are now up to bat.
