Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $50,000 to Prism to support a criminal justice vertical. Prism, a new nonprofit organization that works closely with Dailykos.com, plans to launch multiple verticals focusing on important issues. This funding will support the hiring of reporters, fellowship stipends, and administrative support for criminal justice journalism. In keeping with journalistic standards, all produced content will be clearly labeled, and Open Philanthropy will have no editorial control over the content ultimately published.
This follows Open Philanthropy's May 2019 support and falls within its focus area of criminal justice reform.
