Human Rights Defense Center DEDICATED TO PROTECTING HUMAN RIGHTS Help Support our GoFundMe Campaign CoreCivic & GEO Group: Don’t Cage Kids! Stop Private Prison Firms from Housing Immigrant Parents, Children & Families! Private prison companies should not profit from housing immigrant families, and families should not be separated, period. For-profit prison companies CoreCivic (formerly Corrections Corp. of America) and GEO Group operate immigrant detention centers across the U.S. This campaign, coordinated by the Human Rights Defense Center (publisher of Prison Legal News), will introduce shareholder resolutions with both companies to prohibit them from housing any immigrant children separated from their parents, any immigrant parents separated from their children, and any immigrant detainee families whether they have been separated or not. The resolutions have already been drafted. The goal of the campaign is to ensure the two largest companies that house immigrant detainees cannot hold families or separated parents and children, should the Trump administration’s separation policy be renewed in the future. Our associate director, Alex Friedmann, already owns just enough stock to file the resolutions with CoreCivic and GEO, and has filed other activist resolutions previously. We already have pro bono counsel lined up. All we need is your support! Please visit our website and click on the link at the top of the page to view our GoFundMe campaign to introduce shareholder resolutions with both CoreCivic and GEO Group! visit: www.humanrightsdefensecenter.org or www.prisonlegalnews.org Thank you for your support! DRAFT CoreCivic Shareholder Resolution RESOLUTION RESOLVED: That the stockholders of the Company request that the Board of Directors adopt the following policy, to be implemented no later than December 31, 2019: 1. CoreCivic shall prohibit immigrant detainee children (persons under the age of 18 who are held in custody because they are suspected of entering the United States in violation of immigration laws), who have been separated from their parent or parents by any U.S. government entity, from being housed at any facility owned or operated by the Company. 2. CoreCivic shall prohibit adult immigrant detainees (persons over the age of 18 who are held in custody because they are suspected of entering the United States in violation of immigration laws), who have been separated from their child or children by any U.S. government entity, from being housed at any facility owned or operated by the Company. 3. CoreCivic shall prohibit immigrant detainee families (consisting of one or both parents and one or more children who are held in custody because they are suspected of entering the United States in violation of immigration laws) from being housed at any facility owned or operated by the Company, whether the parents have been separated from their children or not. 4. If CoreCivic houses any immigrant detainees described in sections 1, 2 or 3 above, pursuant to contracts with any government entity, the Company shall, upon the implementation of the above policies, immediately move to withdraw from or terminate such contracts as soon as possible, including invoking any early termination options or clauses in such contracts. A supporting statement will also be included when the resolution is filed in late September or early October 2018. If the resolution makes it through the SEC review process, it will go before shareholders for a vote at CoreCivic’s next annual meeting in May or June 2019. Before then, the Human Rights Defense Center will be coordinating a campaign to pressure CoreCivic shareholders to vote in favor of the resolution.
