University System of Maryland Anti-Prison Labor Coalition
The USM Anti-Prison Labor Coalition brings people together from across the University System of Maryland committed to the abolition of prison labor.
We demand that USM divest from their partnership with Maryland Correctional Enterprises (MCE) as well as push for legislative change of the legally mandated partnership between public institutions and MCE. We advocate for alternative investments in the larger Maryland community, alternatives rooted in the protection of marginalized communities.
