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!!)
Educational institutions have a special mission in our society. Private prisons are operated for the profit. GEO is all about profit to be made on each prisoner by providing the least care for the inmate. Protest against this private prison for the abuse it has committed on humans.
PLEASE do not allow GEO, the human misery factory, to put its name on an institution that claims to represent human hope. GEO is a modern slave ship and deserves to be destroyed. Please do not align yourself with this abomination!
