Advent 2019 (Thrivent Divest)

Since the Fall of 2019, the Center for Prophetic Imagination has been partnering with No Cages MN and other immigrants right organizations to encourage Thrivent Financial, an explicitly Christian financial service organization, to divest from CoreCivic and GEO Group.  These two companies are building concentration camps for migrants near the U.S.-Mexico border. As a group of Christian and Christian-adjacent organizers and activists, we work to call attention to the hypocrisy of Thrivent’s “Christian charity” as they support the caging of children to turn a profit for their members.

Please join us in signing this open letter, asking Thrivent to divest from these companies.
