Maryland Cure

Maryland CURE is a state chapter of International CURE, an organization dedicated to reducing crime through reform of the criminal justice system since 1972. We believe prisons should only be used for those who absolutely must be incarcerated. Prisons should not be used as warehouses for humanity.
