The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $165,000 to Project NIA, via the Chicago Freedom School, to support Mariame Kaba’s work on transformative justice. Project NIA plans to use these funds to support trainings on transformative justice and to organize resources for activists and community members interested in this method. Project NIA also plans to write about and lead campaigns to reduce the incarceration of people who are survivors of sexual and domestic violence.

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