The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $125,000 to The People’s Lobby Education Institute to support its work on prosecutorial accountability in Chicago. The People’s Lobby Education Institute plans to use this grant to support local organizing to work with Cook County State’s Attorney (SA) Kim Foxx to ensure that her policies are keeping Cook County communities safe without overly relying on jail and prison incarceration. The People’s Lobby Education Institute recently published a report1 evaluating SA Foxx’s first year in office.

This grant is a renewal of our March 2017 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
