Mounting Opposition

Advocates in Mississippi have begun to petition and protest against the Walnut Grove Youth Correctional Facility, a GEO Group juvenile prison. Walnut Grove is the target of a lawsuit by the ACLU and the Southern Poverty Law Center due to its abnormally high rates of abuse and violence (primarily). The lawsuit further alleges that GEO houses children at Walnut Grove in "barbaric, unconstitutional conditions."
