To support criminal justice reform work.

Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $400,000 over two years to Free Hearts, via the Praxis Project, to support criminal justice reform work. Free Hearts is an organizing and advocacy group based in Tennessee that works with formerly incarcerated and currently incarcerated women and girls and their families to reduce incarceration, especially of women and girls. Free Hearts plans to use these funds to expand its member base and to continue to work on legislation and campaigns around decarceration policy, voting rights restoration and jail voting access, youth and family policy, and other criminal justice reforms.
