The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $300,000 to The Justice Collaborative (TJC), via the Tides Foundation, to support cultural engagement around the Los Angeles release of the film “Just Mercy.” TJC plans to use these funds to leverage attention around the film to increase attention on local criminal justice issues in Los Angeles via prosecutor candidate forums, film screenings, and other awareness-building efforts.

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