The NV-CURE IB Newsletter No. 40 will come out in a new style in February of 2020.
Due to financial concerns, we have had to go to a new magazine style for our Newsletter with the assistance of a magazine publisher. All NV-CURE Members will continue to receive our Newsletter as part of their Membership in our non-profit organization. This Magazine Newsletter will be published on a monthly basis.
The new publisher will print all of our articles in a magazine style and will be paid for by advertisers in the magazine. The magazine with our articles and advertisements will be sent to all of our members, including those in the community, and to various other persons and organizations involved in the criminal justice reform movement. We are awaiting approval to have copies of the magazine sent to the libraries at all NDOC facilities. It is a work in progress and we will all see how it goes.
We realize how important our news is to our members, particularly those on the inside. Be patient and we will see how it goes.
We just published our 38th Information Bulletin (IB), which you can read here.
We also noticed your requests to read earlier newsletters from 32 down, and we discovered that those published from 32 down did not have a link to all on the internet. We fixed this, so if all is well, you can access all our newsletters again.
This is the page where you can find links to all 38 of the IB’s.
Thank you for your interest, and if you would like to donate to keep our Information Bulletins being published, you are very welcome to donate via Paypal (firstname.lastname@example.org).
A position as a Director and Secretary for NV-CURE will be open within the next year. Our current Director and Secretary, WILLIAM O’CONNELL, is going to retire from the position. He has done a wonderful job and we sincerely hate to see him go.
Any person interested in becoming a Director and the Secretary for NV-CURE should contact our leader, John Witherow, and request consideration for the positions. As a Director, you will vote on issues and assist in running the organization. As the Secretary, you will be the backbone of the organization and be the person who handles the mail (pick-up, delivery, scanning, and e-mailing), securing people to answer
prisoner correspondence, work on special projects, logging, printing and mailing newsletter, tracking membership and supporting, logging complaints, making bank deposits, assisting with fundraisers, talking and typing minutes of meetings, and performing any other functions needed by the organization It is a very big job and any applicant should be prepared to devote a significant amount of time to the job.
Right now, the Secretary is paid $1.00 per year for their work for NV-CURE, which is donated back to the organization. We are going to try to change that. We are looking for a grant writer and the number one project of the grant writer will be trying to secure a grant for $50,000.00 per
year for the work and operation of NV-CURE of the Secretary.
Anyone want the job? If so, please contact our organization.
We also need a grant writer. Is there any out there who wants to be a grant writer, or assist a person in the process, with the very first project of securing a grant for pay for the NV-CURE Secretary position? If so, please contact our organization immediately.

Nevada Cure just published the latest issue of the Informational Bulletin, with among others:
- Status of Proposed Legislation On Prisons and Parole
- Formerly Incarcerated People Can Vote, and
- Check Your Voting Right Status
- A Report on the April 2019 NV-CURE and NDOC Meeting
- A Request to Prisoners with Suggestions Regarding the Grievance Procedures

- Prison Reform: Overpopulation: More Good Time, by a NV Prisoner
- A review of the book The Meaning of Life: The Case for Abolishing Life Sentences (The New Press, 2018), by Mark Mauer and Ashley Nellis of the Sentencing Project
(www.sentencingproject.org), a criminal justice reform organization, and a start of a discussion on abolishing Life Sentences.
“While the elimination of life sentences is not a reform that will be embraced by state legislatures in the very near future, it is heartening that there is a growing awareness of the need to reconsider the life sentence, not only in the interest of cost-effectiveness, but in the interest of becoming a more humanitarian society.”
Read our 12-page Informational Bulletin (nr 35) here, print it and send it to a prisoner whom you know will want to read it.
