These signs will not be blank long- Help needed! In the  past few weeks residents of Gary and Northwest Indiana discovered that GEO, For Profit Prison corporation had purchased land near the Gary airport and was fast tracking rezoning through Gary City council.

After initially supporting the decision Gary Mayor Karen Freeman Wilson rescinded her support. However the city council can still approve the project. Next steps:

1. SIGN the online petition to stop this endeavor.
2.Attend the Tuesday Nov. 17th Gary City Council Meeting. 5Pm Prayer vigil, 6 PM meeting.
3. Attend the Gary Zoning Board Monday Nov. 23 at 1PM
4. Educate yourself on the facts- not the smokescreen.
