Private prisons are being run without the same oversight as other prisons, thanks to a loophole that allows them to not disclose information.
As a result, the public is left in the dark about the conditions inside these detention centers. Together, we must change that. Join RootsAction and a coalition of groups by adding your name here.
The Private Prison Information Act would ensure that non-federal entities provide the information necessary for the government to respond to FOIA requests, while still allowing for the protection of confidential information.
Become a grassroots co-signer of the Private Prison Information Act to force private contractors to adhere to the same public disclosure laws as their federal counterparts.
