- To support the establishment of a Texas office to increase engagement of Latinx communities in criminal justice reform.
The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $250,000 over two years to LatinoJustice to support the establishment of an office in Texas to focus on increasing engagement of Latinx communities in criminal justice reform. LatinoJustice plans to hire Jorge Renaud to run the new project, which could include convenings to increase Latinx engagement in criminal justice reform, a bilingual newsletter that goes out to criminal justice reform and immigration groups across the region; and organizing and advocacy trainings for Latinx people directly impacted by the criminal justice system.
This discretionary grant follows Open Philanthropy's February 2017 support and falls within its focus area of criminal justice reform.
