The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $5,000 to Initiate Justice via Dignity and Power Now to support prisoner education related to the passing of California Proposition 57.1 Initiate Justice will use these funds to conduct a direct mail campaign to prisoners in California educating them on the proposition and its potential effect on their sentences.

This is a discretionary grant, and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
