The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $400,000 over two years to the Colorado Criminal Justice Reform Coalition (CCJRC) to support criminal justice reform work, including prosecutor accountability. CCJRC plans to use these funds to mobilize members to participate in community meetings, candidate forums, and voter registration drives, to work on implementing criminal justice legislation passed earlier this year, and to support further legislative reforms in future years.

This follows our May 2018 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
