Louisiana CURE (Citizens United for the Rehabilitation of Errants)


CURE (Citizens United for Rehabilitation of Errants) is an International organization that seeks to reduce crime through reform of the criminal justice system, especially prison reform.  CURE began in Texas in 1972 when citizens went to the legislature in Austin to work against the death penalty. CURE was formally organized in Texas in 1975 and became a National organization in 1985 & an International organization in 2005. Louisiana CURE began as an inmate chapter at Angola State Penitentiary. In 1990, citizens began a Louisiana state chapter outside prison and a temporary Board of Directors was appointed. In 1992, a formal Board was elected and an Executive Director established on a permanent basis in Baton Rouge.
