CURB holds media campaigns, People’s Hearings, and demonstrations statewide. We’ve helped defeat over 140,000 new prison and jail beds proposed since 2004.
We reduce by organizing campaigns to combat costly and wasteful prison construction and by supporting diversion and community-based alternatives to incarceration.
We redirect resources and funds away from prison and jail construction and back into our communities by actively participating in the budget process.
There’s no better why to stay up-to-date with our campaigns and events than signing up for our newsletter.
Learn about our different demonstrations, media campaigns, People’s Hearings, and how we’ve defeated jail construction in the past!
Our internships provide the opportunity to gain experience in research, outreach, grassroots organizing, media campaigns, coalition and movement building, public education, policy advocacy and social justice work.
CURB seeks member organizations who are working on issues related to the prison industrial complex and organizations concerned about our state budget priorities.
