Happy to Join CURB

I am the daughter of a law enforcement officer and sister to someone currently incarcerated, an up-and-coming poet, and aspiring Civil Rights Attorney. For over a year I have dedicated myself to legal research and advocacy for those most affected by the prison-industrial complex, with a strong focus on successful community sponsored re-entry. I have worked on policy research for organizations such as the Sacramento chapter of Black Lives Matter and the ACLU. I am honored to be an advocate with CURB, and am looking forward to speaking with you all on our weekly advocacy workgroup meeting, Thursdays at 3:30pm.

CURB is currently looking for a media & communications and development intern for the winter. The application process can be found here!

 

In solidarity,

Miraj Simpson
