Double your impact in the fight against imprisonment!

Greetings CURB Friends and Family,

At this time of year, many of us are enjoying meaningful times with family and close friends, connecting with our roots and with each other through food, games, and conversation.

But it’s a difficult time for those of us who have empty seats at the table, missing the parents, children, and other loved ones who are locked behind the walls of the dozens of prisons and hundreds of jails that tear apart our communities in California.

We know a 15-minute call on the prison phone is never long enough to tell someone how grateful you are to have them in your life.

Join with freedom-fighters from across the state and make your #GivingTuesday donation today to strengthen the movement to end incarceration.

This year, thanks to one of our most committed supporters, your gift will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $25,000!

Your gift today will be put to work immediately as the fierce CURB coalition engages at the local and statewide level to shrink the system of prisons and jails, reduce incarceration, educate decision-makers, and build strength and self-determination in marginalized communities.

And your donation goes even further, by supporting justice and freedom for all Californians.

Because we all benefit when our society prioritizes true community well-being, strength, and safety — and doesn’t use imprisonment and oppression to address economic problems.

This holiday season, I am most thankful for the power and resilience of the people who have been most impacted by incarceration, as we fight together for our collective liberation.

With hope and gratitude,

Lizzie Buchen
