The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $50,000 to the Vera Institute of Justice to create a report on the state of safety and justice reform, which it hopes will function as a guide to help people outside the criminal justice reform movement (including new funders, allies, academics, and business leaders) to orient themselves to the field. The Vera Institute of Justice also plans to give 4-6 presentations in order to broaden the set of people engaged in criminal justice reform. This is a seed grant intended to help the Vera Institute of Justice raise the remaining funding it will need to create the report and fund launch events.

This is a discretionary grant.
