The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $300,000 to Prism to support the launch of 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 the Open Philanthropy Project will have no editorial control over the content ultimately published.
This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's focus area of criminal justice reform.
