The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $100,000 to We Got Us Now for general support. We Got Us Now is a digital platform seeking to organize children of incarcerated parents and raise public awareness about the impacts of parental incarceration. Michelle Crentsil, our Associate for Criminal Justice Reform and the investigator of this grant, believes it’s plausible that We Got Us Now will continue to encourage members to take various actions; begin to build a national network; develop partnerships to develop and deploy this constituency; and identify other leaders in this constituency.

This grant is a renewal of our September 2017 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
