SUCCESS: LGBT Chamber: Cut Ties With Private Prisons

Update: The LGBT Chamber of Commerce, through the organizing and advocacy of people like you, has decided to divest completely from CoreCivic. Thank you for your support as we fight on!

Nashville LGBT Chamber of Commerce must sever its ties with Core Civic (formerly known as Corrections Corporation of America), a private organization that makes money from incarcerating migrants, refugees, Native Americans, poor people, and People of Color.

Why is this important?

The Nashville LGBT Chamber of Commerce's stated goal is to "advocate and educate on behalf of our individual, small business, corporate, and nonprofit members who share the values of promoting equity and diversity in business and society." Core Civic's policies and business model actively harms LGBT people from many communities which is in direct violation of their stated goal of advocating for LGBT people.
