Break It Down: Art and Resistance
September 9, 2016 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
INVEST IN COMMUNITIES — NOT JAILS AND PRISONS!
Break it Down: Art + Resistance is an evening of art, community and celebration to benefit Californians United for a Responsible Budget (CURB). We are a statewide coalition of 70 grassroots organizations working to reduce the number of people in prisons and jails, reduce the number of prisons and jails in the state, and shift local spending from corrections and policing to vital human services.
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. Join us and our allies in the art community to help cultivate the resources we need to fight the Prison Industrial Complex.
Bidding for our on-line art auction starts Wednesday, September 7th at 12pm PT exclusively on www.paddle8.com. Please join us Friday, September 9th at Break it Down: Art + Resistance to celebrate the launch, view the work available in the auction and bid live. Bidding ends Wednesday, September 21st at 12PM PT on the Paddle8 website.
