The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $510,000 over two years to Citizen Action of New York to support work on criminal justice reform. Citizen Action intends to use these funds to continue to engage in grassroots organizing and legislative advocacy to decarcerate jails, reform the pretrial system, and advance other reforms to the criminal justice system.

This follows our May 2019 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
