We're celebrating one year of historic wins pushing two of the largest pensions in the world to divest from for-profit prison companies!
Since launching the Educators for Migrant Justice in summer 2018, your donations have helped build a grassroots movement that has driven two landmark victories in the fight to end pension fund complicity in the migrant abuse crisis! We're just getting started, but we can't do this without you!
Donate today to support more groundbreaking grassroots victories.
November 7th is the one year anniversary of our first campaign victory pushing CalSTRS, the second largest pension in the US, to divest from for-profit prisons over their abuse of migrants and other detainees. In the year since, your donations have allowed us to continue this work and successfully advocate for CalPERS, one of the world's largest and most influential investors, to follow CalSTSR' lead and divest from for-profit prison companies as well.
ESG Transparency Initiative's Educators for Migrant Justice campaign has taken tens of millions of dollars of hard-earned retirement money out of the private prison industry and, in doing so, has set a precedent that pension funds across the country are expected to follow.
We've pushed pensions to divest nearly $15 million from migrant abuse companies, and on the one year anniversary of our first win, we're asking supporters to donate $15 or more to ensure we can continue this important work tackling the most pressing human rights and environmental issues of our time.
Our work is redefining how businesses and investors approach human rights and environmental abuses, sending shockwaves across the financial world, and this is only possible because of support from generous individuals like you. Become a monthly donor to help us grow this powerful movement in defense of people and the planet.
