The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $50,000 to the Detroit Justice Center (DJC) via the Urban Justice Center for general support. DJC is a new nonprofit law firm focused on remedying the impacts of mass incarceration by building a model of integrated legal services, advocacy, and alternatives in Detroit. Our Program Officer for Criminal Justice Reform, Chloe Cockburn, is excited about the model and leadership of DJC, which she considers to be very strong.

This is a discretionary grant, and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
