Since 2011, CURYJ has been building community relationships and mobilizing young leaders to organize and create in the movement to end mass incarceration and youth criminalization. CURYJ was born when our co-founders, who lived through the impacts of systemic violence and incarceration, set out to beautify their neighborhood, engage youth in the area and coordinate pro-bono legal defense for local defendants in the Fruitvale gang injunctions.

Over the past couple of months I've seen Black folks targeted by white supremacy, from the NYPD harassing folks for not wearing masks to the deaths of people at the hands of both Police and vigilantes. During this pandemic we see that white supremacy is alive as ever and as Brown folk we need to stand up to anti-Blackness and white supremacy in this country, and especially in our communities. We need to demonstrate solidarity, taking a position against anti-Blackness and affirm Black humanity just as we affirm our own humanity in the face of white supremacy that keeps us all down. #BlackLivesMatter #Black&BrownSolidarity #BlackAndBrownSolidarity #LasVidasNegrasImportan #TogetherWeArePowerful #JuntosSomosPoderosos
