“Modern Day Slavery? An Introduction to Privatized Prisons”

Facilitators: students in the Advocacy for the Common Good course (CSC 33900); Maddie Whitney (Business Analytics and Public Service '22), Sophia Henn (Peace Studies, Music Theory, Economics '21), Elaine Carter (Accounting '22)

A discussion focused on the inherent problems behind the privatized prison industry, including race-based discrimination, exorbitant rates of recidivism, and unjust profiteering of labor by incarcerated populations. The discussion will continue with an examination of the financial relationships between this industry and large institutions such as the University of Notre Dame, through the contributions of employee retirement fund investments.
