The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $450,000 to the Community Justice Exchange (CJE) via the Tides Foundation to support technical assistance and campaign support for criminal justice reform organizations. CJE plans to use these funds to continue its coaching to support campaigns around participatory defense, bail funds, prosecutor accountability, and pretrial risk assessment tools, to expand its cohort of court-watching groups and bail funds, and to develop and deliver training materials on various tactics.

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