The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $2,000,000 to the Alliance for Safety and Justice Action Fund (ASJ Action), via The Advocacy Fund, for general support. This funding is intended to support ASJ Action’s ongoing policy reform, legislative and ballot advocacy, and lobbying efforts. We consider ASJ Action an effective organization that has contributed to the passing of several criminal justice reform bills at the state level.

This grant was made by a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization, to which we occasionally make funding recommendations. The Open Philanthropy Project separately recommended a grant to Alliance for Safety and Justice via the Tides Center, a 501(c)(3) organization affiliated with ASJ Action. This is a renewal of previous support for ASJ Action and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
