Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $180,000 to the Movement Alliance Project to support work on prosecutor accountability in Philadelphia. The Movement Alliance Project intends to use these funds to organize community members for prosecutor accountability and to make re-grants to community groups seeking to challenge mainstream narratives around criminal justice. Our criminal justice reform team believes that this effort could help Philadelphia’s prosecutor implement reform-minded policies.

This follows our March 2018 support to the Media Mobilizing Project and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
