CURYJ

CURYJ (pronounced 'courage') unlocks the leadership of young people to dream beyond bars. We look to young people to lead the way in transforming our communities by investing in their healing, aspirations, and activism.

Opening its doors in June 2024, The Oscar Grant Youth Power Zone at the Fruitvale Transit Village is more than a home for CURYJ: It is the first building-block of community infrastructure that will help us realize the end to youth incarceration in California during our lifetimes.

We still need to raise $415,000 by June for the building at Casa Sueños. CURYJ also acquired the Bonanza Building in December 2023; we need to raise $305,000 for renovation and retrofitting to make this space usable.

Close Youth Prisons, Build Youth Leaders

By 2030, we aim to end youth incarceration in California. Every young person is sacred and every young person is a gift. But too many are silenced and disempowered by the impacts of the criminal, immigration, foster care, police, and education systems. We work for transformation and liberation through a combination of individual and collective healing and significant shifts in policy.
