Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $150,000 to Faith in Texas to support its decarceration work in Dallas. This funding is intended to help Faith in Texas train formerly incarcerated leaders to organize faith communities for reform in the local detention and justice systems.

This follows our August 2018 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
