Immigrants for Sale Film

This Sunday, November 22 – 11:30 a.m.

A Justice Team from Mayflower UCC will present the film, “Immigrants for Sale.” The film is 33 minutes long and presents a comprehensive picture of the for-profit prison industry and the immigrants that are affected by it. It is important for two reasons; one, these prisons are being paid for from our taxes and go directly to corporations such as the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) and a few others. There is little oversight of these prisons and little is spent per person for food and other needs. The conditions are horrible and this has been reported with frequency. Secondly, Minnesota is discussing NOW opening a for-profit prison in Appleton, MN. It is important for people to know about this so that they can raise their voices in objection to this type of prison in Minnesota.

PLEASE plan to stay after fellowship time for this important information!
