The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $150,000 to The People’s Lobby Education Institute to support its work on prosecutorial accountability in Chicago. The People’s Lobby Education Institute recently recently co-authored a progress report on addressing systemic racism in the Cook County criminal justice system.

This discretionary grant follows our June 2018 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
