GEO Group

Florida has the 3rd largest prison system in the country and houses the largest private prison corporation called GEO Group.

In the past 20 years, GEO group has given 8.7 million to politicians and have had influence over Florida legislation.

In the 2018 elections, Dream Defenders engaged in a campaign targeting GEO Group, and through direct actions, bird dogging and culture shifting, Dream Defenders got the Florida Democratic Party to pass a resolution discouraging candidates from taking private prison funding, and got an additional 30 candidates to sign a pledge to not take private prison funds.
