The Open Philanthropy Project awarded a grant of $75,000 to Forward Justice via Repairers of the Breach to support the advocacy and organizing activities of Daryl Atkinson in North Carolina. This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's work on criminal justice reform.
Forward Justice is a nonprofit organization that focuses on civil rights, racial justice, and social and economic change in the South. The funding is intended to support the hiring of two organizers in North Carolina who will attempt to grow the local chapter of All of Us or None, a grassroots advocacy organization, and outreach and public education activities in Durham and Pitt counties related to prosecutorial accountability and reform.
Open Philanthropy's Program Officer for Criminal Justice Reform, Chloe Cockburn, is excited to support work led by Mr. Atkinson, who she considers a leading figure in the field of criminal justice reform and an effective leader and activist.
