In a major win, AFSC Colorado and partners stop $40M migrant shelter contract

Denver CO (July 7, 2023) - Thanks to a true team effort between AFSC Colorado, AFSC Economic Activism and partners on the ground, Denver city leaders have put a halt to a $40 million contract with the private security company GardaWorld to house 1000 migrants.

"The real question is, does Denver want to be the guinea pig for sheltering of vulnerable people with a corporation that has no experience doing that, and only experience in policing and military-style operations?" Jennifer Piper of AFSC asked the Denver Post. "My answer is no," Piper said.

AFSC decided to publish the Summary of Findings on GardaWorld to inform the public and elected officials across the country.
