The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $150,000 to the Essie Justice Group for general support. The Essie Justice Group organizes women with incarcerated loved ones for criminal justice reform. The Essie Justice Group plans to use these funds to build its membership, train cohorts of women impacted by incarceration, and move the trained leaders into campaigns.

This follows our October 2017 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
