- To support the Corrections Accountability Project.
The Open Philanthropy Project awarded a grant of $100,000 in seed funding for the Corrections Accountability Project (CAP), housed at the Urban Justice Center and led by Bianca Tylek. This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's work on criminal justice reform.
CAP aims to eliminate the influence of commercial interests on the criminal justice system and end the exploitation of those it touches. In the near-term, the organization is taking on the following activities to expose the harms caused by the commercialization of justice and return resources to affected communities: public education, legislative and government engagement, investor and corporate activism, and potentially impact litigation.
