Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $3,000,000 over three years to Essie Justice Group for general support. Essie Justice Group organizes women with incarcerated loved ones for criminal justice reform. Essie Justice Group plans to use these funds to build its membership, train women impacted by incarceration in advocacy, and lead decarceration campaigns in California.

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