The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $250,000 to the Alliance for Safety and Justice (ASJ), via the Tides Center, to support its Campaign Academy for Safety and Justice. The Campaign Academy trains people impacted by crime and incarceration in campaigning, negotiations, and communications. The course focuses primarily on those who are survivors of crime or were formerly incarcerated and have relevant experience and vision of how their communities can be transformed. ASJ believes leaders who go through the Campaign Academy may eventually support legislative work and other criminal justice reform campaigns.

This follows our November 2018 general operating support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
