The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $200,000 to Citizen Action of New York to support public education and engagement on the role of prosecutors in decarcerating communities in Upstate New York. Citizen Action intends to use these funds to increase the visibility of criminal justice reform in key districts.

This grant was made by a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization, to which we occasionally make funding recommendations.

This discretionary grant follows our October 2018 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
