Edit May 12: better version of the newsletter 42, and also added no. 43 (May 2020.
NV-CURE and Res Gestae have dissolved their relationship for publication of our newsletter based on editorial differences and that we will attempt to continue the publication of our Informational Bulletin on a monthly basis IF we are able to determine a new method of distribution or secure sufficient funding.
So for now, we have decided to continue to publish our IB for Nevada Cure’s many members inside and outside prisons. Unfortunately we lack the funds to print it and send it in to the hundreds of members.
Therefore if you have a family member inside, who would like to read the latest Informational Bulletin, please print it out and send it to them!
Here is the IB 42 (April 2020) version as an online PDF.

We have partnered with people who have included Nevada Cure’s Newsletter (Informational Bulletin) into a new magazine called Res Gestae.
Our first issue, February 2020, is out now:
By clicking on this link you can read the first issue
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 (email@example.com).

- Status of Proposed Legislation On Prisons and Parole

- Check Your Voting Right Status
- A Report on the April 2019 NV-CURE and NDOC Meeting

- 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.
Nevada Cure presents our latest Nevada-Cure-Informational-Bulletin-Nr33-January2019, our 33rd!
Thank you to everyone for making this a reality.
Best wishes for the New Year!
