The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $170,000 to Reclaim Philadelphia, via the Keystone Progress Education Fund, to support work coordinating the Judge Accountability Table coalition. The Judge Accountability Table, formed by a coalition of 15 local organizations, plans to use these funds to build a website, to hire organizers to lead participatory defense, courtwatching, education, and accountability measures, and to develop leaders who have been directly impacted by the criminal justice system.

This falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
