Detention Center protestOn July 23rd, protestors gathered to call on the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors. Their demand?  They want the county to divest taxpayers’ money from banks that have ties to migrant detention facilities. 

But when do ethics overpower financial incentives? Activists may call for divestment, but county officials are concerned that the loss of revenue that might result could complicate the county’s ability to meet its daily monetary needs. 

KRCB’s Isabella Bloom has the story.

 

 

Since the protest, Vice President of GEO Group Kathy Prizmich, who happens to live in Sonoma County, sent a letter to Hopkins, urging the board not to divest.
