Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $300,000 over two years to Worth Rises, via the Urban Justice Center, for general support. Worth Rises, led by Bianca Tylek, conducts research on the commercialization of the corrections system and advocates against the exploitation of incarcerated people.

This follows our November 2018 support to the Corrections Accountability Project and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
