Private Prisons: Start A Group Discussion

One of the most striking issues regarding the U.S. mass incarceration problem is how private prisons profit from the detention of prisoners, especially immigrants. Share with a small group to help make others aware of how private prisons use prisoners to make money.


Many times we hear or read something that changes the way we think about an issue. But how often do we share that change of heart with others? 
 

After learning more about mass incarceration and realities of private prisons, use your new knowledge and bring it to a group of friends, a small group at church, or start a new gathering. Below is the full documentary about the Private Prison industry that the earlier video was taken from. In your small group:
 

  1. Watch the documentary together.
     
  2. Discuss parts of the film that surprised you about the prison system in the U.S. What new things did you learn? How does this change the way you view the U.S. prison system?
     
  3. Decide as a group how to make other people aware of these issues. Perhaps you all can share something together on social media using #massincarceration or #prisonauction.
     
  4. As a group, discuss other opportunities to learn more about mass incarceration.
     
  5. Talk about ways that you as a group can begin to address mass incarceration in your community. 
     
  6. We'd love to hear more about your experience with a small group. Share with Moyo by posting a picture or comment on our Facebook (Moyo), Twitter (@moyoliving/#moyoliving), or Instagram (@moyoliving/#moyoliving)
