The Conference of Major Superiors of Men — of which the Viatorians are members — has joined with the more than 85 organizations of the Families Belong Together coalition calling on Wells Fargo and JP Morgan Chase to stop financing for-profit prison companies benefitting from family separation and detention.

This Wednesday, Sept. 26, there will be a mass petition drop at the headquarters of both banks and at various local branches.
