Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $9,000 to Momentum, a training institute and movement incubator, to reconvene organizers who have participated in the Black Momentum training series. Momentum plans to use these funds to work with Black Momentum alumni to identify and synthesize lessons from contemporary and historic social movements. Many of those who plan to attend the training are involved in criminal justice reform work.

This follows our October 2019 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
