Nothing to Celebrate! Protest at CCA Headquarters in Nashville, May 16

CCA is the oldest for-profit prison company in the nation.  On May 16th, they met at the Nashville headquarters to celebrate their 30th anniversary, and to hold their annual shareholder meeting.  Meanwhile, protesters outside made it clear that 30 years of profiting from human misery was nothing to celebrate!

Channel 4 News reported:

“It affects real people–not just numbers; not just the dollar signs that they count on their ledgers at the end of the day when they’re calculating their profit; not just their stock price in the New York Stock Exchange. But what CCA does impacts real people and real families,” said Alex Friedman with the Human Rights Defense Center.
