How to stop financing prison growth: Workshopping case studies in unprecedented wins

Christina Hollenback July 13, 2022

In the wake of the racial reckoning of 2020, financial institutions made long overdue public statements and commitments on racial justice, police accountability, and mass incarceration. Yet less than 2% of those financial commitments have been deployed, and the sweeping legislative changes called for from the streets have barely moved an inch in state houses across America.

In the midst of this, investors have been organizing themselves to stand with calls from grassroots communities to stop the financing of mass incarceration. Making due on these long overdue commitments, investors working in tandem with grassroots activists have proven that together we can win in unprecedented ways to stop the growth of prisons in America.

Join us for this interactive workshop as we learn from these shining examples that enable communities to not just stop the growth of mass incarceration, but reimagine how finance can be in service to both  justice and community.  Together, we will workshop with participants how they can deepen their commitment to this work and take it to the next level.
