Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $1,400,000 over two years to the Community Justice Exchange (CJE), via the Tides Center, to support technical assistance, campaign support, and re-grants for criminal justice reform organizations. CJE intends to use this funding to continue to provide training, support, coordination, and strategic direction for grassroots organizations advocating for decarceration, to support its work on the National Bail Fund Network, and to provide re-grants to emerging leaders and organizations.

This follows our August 2019 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.

The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $900,000 over two years to the Community Justice Exchange (CJE) via the Tides Foundation to support technical assistance and campaign support for criminal justice reform organizations. CJE plans to use these funds to continue its coaching to support campaigns around participatory defense, bail funds, prosecutor accountability, and pretrial risk assessment tools, to expand its cohort of court-watching groups and bail funds, and to develop and deliver training materials on various tactics.

The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $250,000 to the Community Justice Exchange (CJE) via the Tides Foundation for general support. CJE is a new organization that will house the National Bail Fund Network, which we have supported previously. CJE intends to use these funds to support information exchange across campaigns working with bail, court watching, participatory defense, and similar approaches, and to support particular campaigns seeking to implement litigation and policy wins relevant to bail reform.

This is a discretionary grant and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
