The trauma immigrant families have faced in detention centers and as a result of Trump’s family separation is horrific. Some children no longer recognize their families. More than 500 children are still separated from their parents. An 18-month-old recently died because of an infection she got in a detention center. The list of human rights abuses is long and atrocious. But there's something you should know:
If you have pension holdings in Fidelity or Vanguard, your hard-earned dollars are funding private prisons that immigrant families are being detained in.
60% of incarcerated migrants are held in prisons run by corporations like CoreCivic. And Vanguard and Fidelity hold a combined 20% of CoreCivic's shares. Which means you have the power to force them to change.
Use our simple pension tool to contact your fund managers and demand they divest from CoreCivic and other private prisons that profit on the pain of immigrant families.
Just scroll down the list of pension funds and select Fidelity or Vanguard.
