The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $25,000 to Smart Justice CA via The Tides Foundation to support lobbying on criminal justice bills considered during the 2018 California legislative session, including bills related to bail reform, youth justice, mandatory sentencing, and law enforcement misconduct.
This grant was made by a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization to which we occasionally make funding recommendations.
This discretionary grant is a renewal of our December 2017 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
