The Open Philanthropy Project awarded a grant of $637,000 to Faith in Texas for general support. This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's work on criminal justice reform.
Faith in Texas is a multi-racial movement aimed at social justice in Texas, the state with the largest incarcerated population in the U.S. This grant is intended to support Faith in Texas’ work to build grassroots support for criminal justice reform among members of white evangelical, black, and Hispanic faith communities in Texas, especially in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. This work aims to support efforts to pass strong criminal justice reform and to build infrastructure and momentum for future reforms.
