Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $100,000 to the Black Strategy Fund, via the Living Through Giving Foundation, for general support. The Black Strategy Fund supports grassroots organizing groups advocating for criminal justice reform, and is led by Patrisse Cullors, who has worked to implement Measure R in LA County and advocate for decarceration in response to COVID-19. Cullors is the co-founder of JusticeLA and the Black Lives Matter movement.

This falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
