The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $1,301,280 to The Justice Collaborative (TJC) via the Tides Foundation for general support. TJC is led by Rob Smith and houses the Accountable Justice Project, which Open Philanthropy helped launch with a grant in April 2016. This new funding is intended to increase TJC’s organizational capacity to facilitate media engagement and outreach related to prosecutor accountability.
This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's work on criminal justice reform. See its overall criminal justice reform strategy for more information on why it supports prosecutorial reform.
