Liberate Our Pensions NYC: Divest From Private Prisons

  • 1 Centre Street New York, NY, 10007 United States (map)

Join us on June 19th, as we work with our comrades at Freedom to Thrive and Worth Rises to encourage New York City to divest its pension investments away from the private equity firm Platinum Equity, which has been profiting off of the private prison system.

There has been a dispute brewing underneath the surface regarding the investment of teacher and police pension funds into the private prison system. Although NYC’s common investment board (which include 5 pensions) does not have public meetings, we are planning to join up with local organizers to hold NYC CIM accountable for these destructive investments.
