Towards Justice fights to end labor trafficking whether in the form of individualized cruelty or systemic, structural coercion. In 2014, together with co-counsel, Towards Justice filed a class action lawsuit against the GEO Group, Inc. (GEO), which operates a 1,500 bed immigrant detention facility in Aurora, CO. The suit, brought by civil detainees who worked for GEO for either $1 per day or for no wages at all and under threat of solitary confinement, alleges that GEO violated state law and federal prohibitions against forced labor. Towards Justice represents the plaintiffs with co-counsel Outten & Golden LLP, The Kelman Buescher Firm, Milstein Law Office, Law Office of R. Andrew Free, and The Meyer Law Office, PC.
