Open Philanthropy recommended two grants totaling $500,000 to the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition (FRRC), via the Tides Foundation, for general support. FRRC worked to build support for Amendment 4, the 2018 ballot initiative that restored voting rights to formerly incarcerated people in Florida. This funding will enable FRRC to hire additional canvassers and continue to conduct outreach to formerly incarcerated people across the state.

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