FREE: The Decarceration Index & Exchange Traded Fund (ETF)
FreeCap Financial, Inc
Washington, DC

FREE is an index that makes it possible to invest in companies who lead in fair chance hiring and disrupt the prison industrial complex.

This team aims to disrupt the cycle of for-profit incentives that drive mass incarceration by making “prison-risk” a universal financial metric. Building a decarceration index will:

  1. make the business case for why investors should treat “prison-risk” as a key component of their risk analysis
  2. make transparent the key policies companies should implement to reduce harm
  3. build a mass movement to move billions of dollars away from the prison industrial complex.‍
