The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $50,000 to the PICO National Network for general support. They intended to use these funds to help expand Cosecha’s community organizing work, including hiring full time organizers for a Detention Defense Campaign in several communities across 12 states.

The Open Philanthropy Project has separately recommended a grant to the PICO Action Fund, a 501(c)(4) affiliated with the PICO National Network.

This is a discretionary grant, and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
