Open Philanthropy recommended that Cari Tuna personally contribute $80,000 to Youth and Families Taking Power for general support on criminal justice reform. Youth and Families Taking Power intends to use these funds to organize community members to elect a reform-minded candidate for Los Angeles district attorney. Our criminal justice reform team believes this effort could help safely reduce incarceration in Los Angeles, which incarcerates the most people of any county in the U.S. and currently represents one-third of California’s prison population.

This grant falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
