Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $150,000 to the Texas Freedom Network (TFN) to support the Texas Rising program’s work on criminal justice reform. Texas Rising plans to use these funds to continue organizing young people (under 30 years old) to push for prosecutor accountability and other reforms.

This follows our October 2019 support and represents an “exit grant” that will provide TFN with approximately one year of support. It falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
