The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $75,000 to the Promise of Justice Initiative (PJI) to support the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison Reform Coalition, which is leading a campaign to replace the East Baton Rouge jail with a smaller, safer facility.

This discretionary grant follows our May 2016 support for PJI and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
