The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $150,000 to the Corrections Accountability Project (CAP), housed at the Urban Justice Center, for general support. CAP, led by Bianca Tylek, educates the public about the harms of the commercialization of the corrections system, advocates against exploitation of incarcerated people, and supports others to lead campaigns that address these harms.

This discretionary funding is a renewal of our October 2017 seed grant, which supported the production of a report on the “Prison Industrial Complex,” and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
