The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $75,000 to Forward Justice via Repairers of the Breach to support the advocacy and organizing activities of Daryl Atkinson in North Carolina. This grant falls under our criminal justice reform focus area. The funding is intended to support the hiring of two organizers in North Carolina who will attempt to grow the local chapter of All of Us or None—a grassroots advocacy organization—and outreach and public education activities in Durham and Pitt counties related to prosecutorial accountability and reform.

Our Program Officer for Criminal Justice Reform, Chloe Cockburn, is excited to support work led by Mr. Atkinson, who she considers a leading figure in the field of criminal justice reform and an effective leader and activist.

This is a discretionary grant.
