Open Philanthropy recommended two grants totaling $4,200,000 over two years to the Texas Organizing Project (TOP) to support work on criminal justice reform. TOP plans to use these funds to expand its criminal justice reform and prosecutor accountability work in Houston, San Antonio, and Dallas. These cities have high incarceration rates, and TOP believes there are many potential policy changes that would generate substantial impact.

This follows our August 2018 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
