The Open Philanthropy Project awarded a grant of $52,000 to the Texas After Violence Project (TAVP) to support a research and video documentation project in collaboration with Texas Advocates for Justice. This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's work on criminal justice reform.
TAVP is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting restorative, nonviolent ways to prevent and respond to violence in Texas. TAVP intends to use this grant towards a project to record on-camera interviews with formerly incarcerated people to document the impacts of incarceration on their families and communities. These stories will be shared with the public and policy makers as part of systems-change efforts. The grant will cover project planning, post-production, training and workshops, and travel expenses.
