Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $100,000 to the Movement Voter Project (MVP), via the Tides Foundation, to support student organizing for criminal justice reform. MVP plans to use these funds to continue its work to organize convenings and support local youth and student organizations working on criminal justice reform issues. MVP also plans to re-grant a portion of the funds to Freedom to Thrive, another youth organizing organization.

This follows our April 2018 support to Gamechanger Labs and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
