The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $120,000 to Movement for Family Power, via Social and Environmental Entrepreneurs, for general support.[1] Movement for Family Power challenges the separation of children from their parents under policies of the criminal justice and child welfare systems. Movement for Family Power plans to use these funds to support organizing, advocacy, and movement building work in various states to combat the criminalization and punishment of families.
