SPEAR referendum

The Graduate Student Government will be voting on a referendum to recommend that the Council of the Princeton University Community (CPUC) and the Princeton University Investment Company (PRINCO) dissociate and divest from corporations that draw profit from incarceration or immigrant deportation policies. This includes (1) Corporations that operate private prisons, jails, halfway houses and/or immigration detention facilities in the United States, such as the Corrections Corporation, The GEO Group, and G4S, and (2) Corporations that contract exclusively with such correctional facilities, including Global Tel Link, JPay, Securus and Corizon.

Note: This referendum applies to private, i.e., for-profit, corporations that “draw profit from incarceration or immigrant deportation policies” when state and federal carceral institutions engage their services. This referendum is a non-binding resolution.
