What Will You Build in 2014?

Dear Supporter:

THANK YOU for building communities not jails with us in 2013.

CURB will continue building a movement against prison and jail expansion in 2014 beginning with major actions in January. But we need your help.

We are $414 away from our holiday fundraising goal.

Making a donation to CURB by midnight tonight will help ensure that our mobilizations in January and throughout the year are successful. Your support makes CURB’s work to combine the power organizations across the state possible. Remember, the Returning Home Foundation will match donations of up to $5,000 received by midnight tonight!

Look out for future emails with full details on CURB’s January Mobilizations:

January 10th: Building a Road Out of Poverty Response to Gov. Jerry Brown’s 2014 Budget

January 16th: No More Jails Statewide Mobilization to Los Angeles

January 23rd: Action to stop the proposed San Francisco Jail.


Dreaming big and fighting hard,

Emily and Diana
