Being a part of CURB's growth

Dear Supporter,

Just yesterday I was able to vote for the first time in 52 years. The right that I was able to excercise yesterday reminded me of all the CURB members that fight and will continue to fight for the liberation of all those still inside Meme for Jerry's Email CURB MY 2016(2)and those of us on the outside.

This is exactly why I am proud to be a part of CURB.

I have seen, felt, and experienced the importance of this coalition that fights against the systems of oppression that incarcerate us and advocates for a world without cages.

I am asking you to invest in this important work today by giving $30 or $100. Anything you can give will help!

My involvement with CURB has been through my work with All of Us or None and American Friends Service Committee. I have seen how they have lifted up our work and also the work of my comrades in this fight.

I have witnessed the coalition mobilize hundreds of people to Sacramento to demand #nomorejails. I have felt the excitement every year when we stop billions of dollars of prison and jail construction funding in the budget. And I have contributed and expereinced to the dedication that we have to building up a California that invests in care not incarceration.

Be a part of CURB’s growth with me and help us reach $8,000 today! 

We can’t fight the good fight without you. And we know that we have lots of changes we still need to make. Let’s continue to win together.
