Last year, SPEAR entered a coalition called Princeton Private Prison Divest (PPPD), alongside almost ten other student groups in a campaign to urge Princeton to divest from private prison and detention corporations. Princeton has a Resource Committee, which makes a recommendation to the Board of Trustee's on the responsible usage of the University's endowment. The Resource Committee's three criteria for divestment are campus consensus, sustained student engagement with the issue, and a demonstrated conflict with core university values. PPPD has met with the Resource Committee several times, and compiled and continues to revise the following proposal for divestment. In addition, on February 6th, 2017, PPPD is hosting a panel with speakers Christopher Petrella of Bates College, Judy Greene of Justice Strategies, and Carl Takei of the ACLU to discuss the impact of privatization on prisons and immigrant detention centers.
