The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $40,000 to New York Working Families via The Advocacy Fund to support its work on criminal justice reform. The funding is intended to support work to pass legislation to reduce prison and jail populations in New York, and not for other priorities of New York Working Families. Specifically, the funding will allow New York Working Families to encourage state legislation on speedy trial and pretrial confinement, among other criminal justice reform measures.

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