To support Free Hearts' criminal justice reform work.

Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $150,000 to Free Hearts, via the Praxis Project, to support criminal justice reform work. Free Hearts is an organizing and advocacy group based in Nashville that works with formerly incarcerated and currently incarcerated women and girls to reduce female incarceration. Free Hearts plans to use these funds to expand its member base and to continue to work on legislation and campaigns around diversion policy, increased clemency, more pretrial release, and other criminal justice reforms.

This follows Open Philanthropy’s September 2019 support and falls within its focus area of criminal justice reform.
