Citizens United for Rehabilitation of Errants

International Movement for Justice Reform



WELCOME to International CURE


International Citizens United for Rehabilitation of Errants (CURE) is a grassroots organization dedicated to the reduction of crime through the reform of the criminal justice system (especially prison reform.).

Prisons should be used only for people who absolutely must be incarcerated. And that those who are incarcerated should have all of the resources they need to turn their lives around.  A person is sent to prison  AS PUNISHMENT AND NOT FOR PUNISHMENT. The only punishment is the loss of freedom.

We encourage members to become  VOCAL especially when you are struggling with a criminal justice system.

Certainly, it is often easier to feel very helpless and isolated.  Also, it may be difficult to understand the system and you are treated disrespectfully when you talk about it. Finally, You may be overwhelmed by other responsibilities while you have a loved one who is incarcerated.

We understand those feelings. At the same time, if the criminal justice system is to improve, we need many people to speak up about the problems.  Lots of voices can result in change.

Please click on V-O-C-A-L  for a few things you can do.  These are just suggestions. They may not work everywhere. If these won’t work where you live, perhaps they will inspire you to think of something that will work. No one can do all of these things. Anything you can do is likely to help.

Finally,  CURE is a membership organization. We work hard to provide our members with the information and tools necessary to help them understand the criminal justice system and to advocate for changes. Click to Join today

The Rwanda Conference was May 21-25, 2018.

The conference explored reconciliation, restorative justice practices, alternatives to imprisonment, and other issues in the criminal justice context, while taking an up-close look at the Rwandan experience of post-genocide reconciliation.

In addition, we shared experiences and knowledge of recent advances and trends in the area of human rights and prison reform.






CURE International Conference Costa Rica 2017

Over 40 prison reform advocates representing a dozen countries participated in CURE's 7th International Conference on Human Rights and Prison Reform which was held in San Jose, Costa Rica, April 25-29, 2017.

The theme was the Mandela Rules, which were adopted unanimously in 2015 by the United Nations and named after former prisoner and South African President Nelson Mandela.   For more information on the Rules including a copy of these 122 Rules on 29 pages, CLICK HERE

They provide treatment of prisoners in the 21st Century and seek to transform imprisonment from wasted time to an opportunity for personal development. This results in substantially less crime.
