Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Invested Millions In Private Prisons

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation says on its website that it “works to help all people lead healthy, productive lives.”

While the Gates Foundation has invested in many worthy projects to help people worldwide, some of the Gates Foundation Trust investments seem to contradict its admirable goal.

Mother Jones recently analyzed the Gates Foundation’s 2012 tax return to see where it was investing its money.

Probably the most surprising investment was $2.2 million into a private prison company, The GEO Group, which has been accused of numerous human rights abuses and violations.
