INVITE CURB TO GIVE A WORKSHOP

CAN CALIFORNIA BUILD ITS WAY OUT OF THE PRISON CRISIS?

Californians United for a Responsible Budget (CURB) has put together a lively, informative illustrated workshop that will explain why California can’t build its way out of this crisis, why prisons matter to those with and without people locked up and what your organization can do to reverse a quarter century of “the largest prison building project in the history of the world.” In addition, CURB offers a workshop on HOW TO WRITE A LETTER TO THE EDITOR, as well as resources for county and state-level advocacy.

To schedule a workshop or find out more, contact Diana at diana@curbprisonspending.org.
