Over 50 artists are giving to CURB – Will you join?

Hello Supporter,

My name is Rosa, and I am the development intern this summer for CURB. I have learned so much in the past 3 months about the real dedication and perseverance it takes to fight the prison industrial complex. Working with CURB is a truly rewarding experience and the event which I have helped organize is now approaching. Unknown

I wanted to send you a friendly reminder that we are less than 2 weeks away from our art fundraiser, Break it Down: Art + Resistance!

Join us to help cultivate the resources we need to keep up the fight!

Over 50 talented artists have donated pieces to the cause and we even have a few art pieces that were donated from San Quentin prison. All the art will be on display September 9th and will be auctioned off online from September 7th-21st.

Celebrate anti-prison work with us on September 9th!

CURB relies on grassroots funding to help make our vision of true social, racial, and economic justice in California and across the nation a reality.

What: Break it Down: Art and Resistance

When: Friday, September 9th from 7pm-10pm

Where: Human Resources (410 Cottage Home St, Los Angeles, California 90012)

We will also be having guest speakers, food, and music by DJ Micah James. We are so excited about this event and would love for you to be a part of the success! See you on the 9th.
In solidarity,
