Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $75,000 to the Debt Collective, via the Sustainable Markets Foundation, to support its work on criminal justice reform. The Debt Collective seeks to end mass indebtedness by empowering people to dispute debts and advocate for debt policy reform. This funding will build the Debt Collective’s capacity to support people with criminal justice debts, lead campaigns to negotiate the retirement of those debts, and conduct research on other potential debt-related interventions into the criminal justice space.

This falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
