Learn about the Final #CABudget and CURB Bills!


By Noah Miska of Sin Barras

Dear Supporter,

This year marked the first time that CURB has worked on bills to reduce the prison population. Most of our efforts have focused on the state corrections budget, but this year was different and we learned a lot.

We invite to learn more about the #CABudget Battle and the bills that we worked on this year.

What do the steps that we took this year mean for our continued work? And how do the bills and budget impact you or someone that you know?

Learn more about the #CABudget and bills on Tuesday, July 21st at 6:30pm. CURB will be holding its first ever CURB Criminal Justice Policy Briefing – “How are my Loved One’s Impacted?”

We invite advocates, organizers, and family members to learn more about these policies from some of the experts that are members of CURB. We will share next steps that you can take to help us continue the fight against prisons and jails and for community based solutions.

Please RSVP today and save the date. We will be sending the final call information the week before the call with a reminder.

Thank you for standing with us this year and we look forward to continuing the fight together!
