Millions For Prisoners Human Rights Core Demands for Action:

A) We DEMAND the 13th amendment ENSLAVEMENT CLAUSE of the United States Constitution be amended to abolish LEGALIZED slavery in America.

B) We DEMAND a Congressional hearing on the 13th Amendment ENSLAVEMENT CLAUSE being recognized as in violation of international law, the general principles of human rights and its direct links to:

1. Private entities exploiting prison labor

2. Companies overcharging prisoners for goods and services

3. Private entities contracted by states/federal government to build and operate prisons. This would also include immigration detentions.

4. Racial disparities in America?s prison population and sentencing

5. Policing: the disproportionate (unaccountable) killings by police in the black and brown communities

6. Felony Disenfranchisement laws

7. Immigration and Customs Enforcement 34,000 detention quotas

8. Producing the world's largest prison population
