California is in the midst of the most severe prison and budget crises of our lifetimes. Prisoners endure conditions in a system that is fast deteriorating – even as our state budget buckles under a $25 billion deficit while the US Supreme Court prepares to weigh in on the historic Plata/Coleman lawsuit.

We have a chance to set a new course for California – saving the state billions of dollars, and saving essential social services we all rely on.

Come meet with us to get an up-to-date briefing from the Plata/Coleman legal team about various scenarios we can expect out of the Supreme Court and the Brown administration; and to be a part of launching CURB’s Budget for Humanity campaign: a plan to reverse years of misguided budget and social policies. We’ve had enough years of budgets written for tough-on-crime politicians and the most right-wing elements of the state.
