Thanks from CURB!

Hello Supporter,

A huge thank you for making CURB’s art fundraiser, Break it Down: Art + Resistance a huge success — we couldn’t have done it without you.

Our art auction is still happening. Will you place a bid today? 

With over 250 people attending we celebrated the work of anti-prison organizers from across the state and focused on how we can stop the $2.3 billion jail plan in Los Angeles.

Support CURB by placing a bid by Sept. 21st at 12pm pst!

It was truly overwhelming to see the amount of support that was felt on Sept. 9th. Our guest speakers, food, and music by DJ Micah James were all on point. Check out the pictures here!

Help us continue the success by checking out the artwork. 

We are so excited to continue building with you. Support CURB today and be on the look out for lots of events starting up next week in California!
