The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $100,000 to the BlackRoots Alliance, via the March 13 Fund, to support work on prosecutorial accountability in Chicago. The BlackRoots Alliance plans to use this grant to support local organizing to ensure Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s policies are keeping communities safe without overly relying on jail and prison incarceration.

This discretionary grant falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
