Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $250,000 to the National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls (National Council) for general support. The National Council is a network of women impacted by incarceration focused on ending the incarceration of women and girls—a fast-growing incarcerated population—through a mix of relationship building, research, leadership training, and advocacy work. This funding is intended to enable the National Council to organize and provide relief to members during the COVID-19 pandemic.

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