Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $75,000 to the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights (LCCHR) for advocacy on federal criminal justice reform policy. LCCHR works with over 200 civil-rights-oriented groups to eliminate social and economic inequality in the United States. LCCHR intends to use this funding to advocate for the inclusion of criminal justice reform policies in federal COVID-19 stimulus packages and other relief efforts.

This follows our February 2020 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
