The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $321,228 to the ColorOfChange.org Education Fund (“Color Of Change Education Fund”) to support prosecutorial reform and accountability work. This work was intended to consist largely of movement coordination activities for advocates of reform, such as facilitating conversations, hosting convenings, developing strategy, tracking activities, as well as public education campaigns related to prosecutorial accountability. For the accountability campaigns, the Color Of Change Education Fund was intended to attempt to mobilize advocates for reform through a mix of online and offline strategies, such as targeted social media ads, traditional media outreach, grassroots advocacy, and the leveraging of its large digital member list.
This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's work on criminal justice reform. See Open Philanthropy's overall criminal justice reform strategy for more information on why it supports prosecutorial reform.
