Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $140,000 to Yes on J: Re-Imagine L.A. County, a Coalition of Nonprofit Organizations and Justice Advocates to support work on Measure J. If passed by voters, Measure J would amend the county’s charter to require that at least 10% of locally controlled revenue be spent on community programs and alternatives to incarceration, such as mental health services, restorative justice programs, non-custodial diversion, and re-entry programs.

This falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
