San Francisco Public Defender Mano Raju Stands with Black News Editor Fighting GEO Prison Corp
SF Public Defender Mano Raju stands with Malik Washington: "We continue to witness GEO Group's pattern of deceit and neglect in its response to the COVID pandemic. We must protect the health and dignity of the people living at 111 Taylor and invest in future reentry care that is community-based and focused on the needs of individuals, not the profits of GEO Group. I stand in solidarity with Malik Washington and for his rights as a member of the Black press to speak out and protect his community."
