The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $300,000 to the Essie Justice Group for general support. The Essie Justice Group organizes women with incarcerated loved ones for criminal justice reform. In the coming year, the Essie Justice Group will expand its on-the-ground network of women with incarcerated loved ones and continue to advocate for an end to the money bail system and industry. We previously supported the Essie Justice Group with a grant in 2016.
This is a discretionary grant, and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
