The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $530,000 to Just Liberty for general support. The funds were intended to primarily cover expenses related to piloting and potentially expanding a digital media campaign—including the creation and maintenance of a statewide email list devoted to criminal justice issues—as well as staffing support for traditional grassroots organizing and outreach activities. Just Liberty’s constituency includes center-right voters concerned about criminal justice reform, whose voices are likely to be impactful on Republican lawmakers.

This grant was made by a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization, to which we occasionally make funding recommendations.

This grant falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
