It’s #GivingTuesday! Support CURB Today!

Today is #GivingTuesday and CURB needs your support!

You know what keeps our communities safe – good schools for our young people, community-based health care, employment with a living wage, affordable housing …

Shifting $11.4 BILLION away from incarceration would go a long way in restoring the social safety net in California. 

Your donation to CURB today will help us move that money back to YOU!

For the last 15 years, the CURB coalition has stopped $20 million of prison expansion funding, won the fight against jail expansion in San Francisco in 2015, and continues the fight against Los Angeles’ massive $3.5 billion jail plan. Our advocacy and grassroots organizing work will save us millions more as we continue to push for cost saving reforms like elder parole and alternative custody programs. Every dollar wasted on incarceration is a dollar that could help build a clinic or community center in our neighborhoods.

Help us invest in our future!

Every dollar you give to CURB is a dollar towards a better, stronger, safer community for ALL of us! Please encourage your friends, colleagues, relatives and neighbors to make a tax-deductible contribution to CURB today. Through your generosity, we can empower families and build healthy communities together!

Be part of a historic giving season at CURB and make your donation today!

Thank you for giving!
