Dear Supporter, Every day, we hear about violence in the media, see it on the streets we live in, and feel it through our own experiences of trauma. The past few months have been difficult for us all — from the Orlando shooting, to the Stanford rape case, to the murder of Black men in Falcon […]

Tell your local paper: No more jails!

Posted by on June 23, 2016 at 6:25 pm

Dear Supporter, The fight continues in Sacramento. With all his cries for fiscal caution and his claims about reducing California’s sky-high incarceration rates, Governor Jerry Brown is on the verge of approving $270 million in high-interest loans to build new jails.

Being a part of CURB’s growth

Dear Supporter, Just yesterday I was able to vote for the first time in 52 years. The right that I was able to excercise yesterday reminded me of all the CURB members that fight and will continue to fight for the liberation of all those still inside and those of us on the outside.

What I love about CURB

Posted by on June 2, 2016 at 7:33 pm

Dear Supporter, We are living in a terribly uncertain time. As someone who’s been committed to ending mass incarceration for the last six years of my life—beginning with my own unlawful imprisonment as a political hostage in Iran—I feel compelled to seize this moment and take stock. There have been many victories, both locally and […]

We Are So Close…

Posted by on June 1, 2016 at 10:32 pm

Dear Supporter, As a CURB intern, it has been thrilling to witness the amazing people power of our coalition. Last week, we won a significant victory as both houses of the legislature voted to reject the Governor’s proposal for more jail construction funding. We are so close — but we’re not there yet. This week, the […]

This is an enormous victory for the fierce CURB coalition, and shows that Sacramento has bee listening to our demands. But we’re not done yet.  Law enforcement is doing everything they can […]
