The Open Philanthropy Project awarded a grant of $200,000 to the Civil Rights Corps for general support. This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's work on criminal justice reform.
The Civil Rights Corps is an organization that fights systemic injustice in the U.S. legal system. Open Philanthropy is impressed with the work that Alec Karakatsanis, the Founder and Executive Director of the Civil Rights Corps, has done on bail reform, and hopes that this grant will enable him to do more work in this field. The Civil Rights Corps plans to use this grant to hire a senior litigator to supervise bail litigation.
