To support work on criminal justice reform.

The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $150,000 to New Virginia Majority to support work on criminal justice reform. New Virginia Majority is a political base-building organization working on securing rights restoration for the formerly incarcerated. These funds will help support court watching, allow New Virginia Majority to hire and train formerly incarcerated organizers and increase its capacity in key counties, and lay groundwork for future elections.

This is a renewal of Open Philanthropy's October 2016 support, and falls within its focus area of criminal justice reform.
