The Open Philanthropy Project awarded a grant of $2,050,000 over three years to Impact Justice to support its Restorative Justice Project. This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's work on criminal justice reform.
Impact Justice is a national innovation and research center founded in 2015 by a group of criminal justice experts leading projects that focus on demonstrating alternatives to the current criminal justice system. The vice president and director of Impact Justice’s Restorative Justice Project, sujatha baliga, is a national leader in the field of restorative justice. Ms. baliga plans to use the grant to advocate for the restorative justice model, an alternative to the traditional criminal justice system, as a viable way to address harms that are currently addressed through incarceration.
