Wells Fargo: Divest From the Private Detention Industry!

Join Texans United for Families (TUFF) for a national day of action to protest the private prison industry’s role in the immigration detention system and in writing unjust legislation such as Arizona’s SB 1070. Stand with us as we gather outside of the Wells Fargo on 111 Congress Ave. and demand that Wells Fargo divest from the private prison/detention industry.

Wells Fargo is one of the TOP FIVE investors in the private prison corporation the GEO Group and has profited from the GEO Group's lobbying efforts geared towards increasing the incarceration and dehumanization of people of color and migrants.

We are calling on Wells Fargo to divest their holdings in the GEO Group and to end their support of the construction of a new immigration detention center operated by the GEO Group in Karnes County, TX.
