The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $325,500 to Voice of the Experienced for general support. This grant is intended to support the development of a rigorously constructed organizing and voter engagement system for formerly incarcerated people and their families throughout Louisiana. Open Philanthropy sees the grant primarily as an opportunity to learn about the feasibility of building such a system and its potential value on organizing efforts. Funds were intended to pay for increased staffing, direct mailings, travel, and materials.
This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's work on criminal justice reform.
