Arnie Alpert, AFSC New Hampshire Program Director.

A year ago, New Hampshire issued a “Request for Proposals” to firms Interested in building and managing a state prison that would hold most or all the state’s prisoners. A campaign involving AFSC, the State Employees Union, and other groups formed to fight privatization. As of December, privatization opponents are optimistic they will succeed and are turning their attention to measures which would reduce the number of people imprisoned in New Hampshire. Arnie will provide background on the privatization issue as it has played out in New Hampshire and the anti-privatization campaign.
