What is Iowa CURE?

Iowa CURE is a multi-issue, membership-based organization which brings individuals concerned about the correctional system together to work for change both inside and outside prison walls in order to promote healing or restorative justice within the community.

CURE believes in fair and humane treatment of Iowa inmates and more reliance on alternatives to prisons as solutions to our crime problems.

Iowa Cure is a member of the Justice Reform Consortium.
