Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $100,000 to Southerners on New Ground (SONG) to support its criminal justice reform work. SONG organizes LGBTQ people across the South around multiple issues, including decarceration campaigns.

This follows our February 2018 support and represents an “exit grant” that will provide SONG with approximately one year of operating support. It falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
