Sign Petition: Stop GEO Group from Naming a Stadium! (UPDATE: We won!)

(UPDATE: Victory! Thanks to the work of students at FAU and groups and activists across the country, GEO Group has ended its attempt to name the football stadium. People 1, private prisons 0.)

Florida Atlantic University is about to let the GEO Group, a notorious private prison company, slap its name on a new football stadium. Don't allow that to happen! GEO has a shameful record of human rights violations, abuse, and neglect at its facilities.

Sign the petition below to demand that university president Mary Jane Saunders reverse her decision! Click here for the full letter. (And special thanks to the ACLU, Nation Inside, Cuéntame, and Grassroots Leadership for partnering with us on this action!!)

    There is no real justice in the American criminal justice system. The real criminals are those in charge of handing out sentences. America is NOT the sweet land of liberty, nor is she beautiful. It’s a farce. We need to open up our eyes…

    Exploiting the helpless is psychotic, perverted, and moronic.

    Please add my name to the petition against private prison industries for profit.. We must remember we are dealing with human beings and treat these people humanely and with dignity, affording them medical treatment, food and housing under the constitution by not violating their human and civil rights.

    This is a disgusting relationship. My stomach became nauseous. Thankfully, I do not attend the university. If I was there I would transfer to another university. Obviously, you have ignorant students without morals as the same for you. You have dollars signs in your eyes and morals. You have made that obvious to outsiders. While brainwashing your students and faculty. Your are a pathetic human being.

Join the movement to build strong communities out of those broken by mass incarceration.
