Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $1,700,000 over two years to Dignity and Power Now to support its efforts, along with those of JusticeLA and other coalition partners, to reduce incarceration. Dignity and Power Now organizes and advocates for community members impacted by incarceration in Los Angeles County, which currently contains the largest jail system in the country.

This follows our August 2019 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
