- The Soze Agency — Right of Return Fellowship (2019)
- Award Date:
- To support the Right of Return fellowship.
Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $320,000 to The Soze Agency to support its Right of Return fellowship program for formerly incarcerated artists. The fellowship provides fellows with materials, a stipend, and mentorship under co-founders Jesse Krimes and Russel Craig. Fellows work closely with criminal justice reform organizations, using art and the artistic process to highlight issues and further criminal justice reform efforts.
This follows Open Philanthropy's August 2018 support and falls within its focus area of criminal justice reform.
