Arkansas CURE is one of many organizations that is networking resources and leveraging ideas into tangible benefits for all.
I wrote this poem in 1981 or 1982. I wanted people to see that people had a life before they became incarcerated (some of us did anyway) and they lose something out of life from being incarcerated~that incarceration in and of itself is a painful form of punishment, without all the other things put on a person simply because they are locked up.
Four formerly incarcerated people testified about their experiences at the Arkansas Legislative Criminal Justice Oversight Task Force.
Arkansas CURE is so proud of these great people and thankful to have played a part to make this happen.
We are better than this, Arkansas.
Each of these quotes are actual comments made, captured online or in person about those who are condemned to die at the hands of the state. Arkansas is better than this!
