An investigation by the Guardian revealed that the Canada Pension Plan (CPP), is pouring millions of your pension dollars into the US private prison corporations that are executing Trump’s cruel and inhumane anti-immigration agenda. [1]

Over the last year -- while the news was dominated by stories about families separated at the border, and shocking images of babies in cages -- the Canada Pension Plan actually increased its investment by 13 times in the two private prison corporations that run most of the immigration jails we saw on the news. [2]

That’s your money. If you’ve ever worked in Canada, you’ve paid contributions to the CPP fund. We can’t let our CPP contributions flow to corporations that are profiting from Trump’s cruel immigration policies.

This story just broke, and politicians are already speaking out. [3] A massive petition could force the Canada Pension Fund Investment Board to stop investing in companies that put babies in jail -- and draw a line in the sand against Trump’s racist agenda.

But we need to act now, while the story is in the news and the CPP board is deciding how to respond. Will you sign the petition now?

To the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB)

Stop investing our savings in private US prison corporations that are executing Trump’s cruel and inhumane anti-immigration agenda.
