Open Philanthropy recommended $400,000 over two years to the Colorado Criminal Justice Reform Coalition (CCJRC) and $50,000 to the Colorado Criminal Justice Reform Coalition 4 Action (CCJRC4Action) to support criminal justice reform work. CCJRC and CCJRC4Action plan to use this funding to continue work supporting decarceration measures, crime survivors, youth violence reduction programs, and educating the public on prosecutor accountability.

This follows our October 2020 support for CCJRC4Action and our August 2019 support for CCJRC and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
