Organization:
You Are Not Alone
Award Date:
05/2020
Amount:
$30,000
Purpose:
To support a national mobilization effort to decriminalize drug possession.

Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $30,000 to You Are Not Alone (YANA), via Ohio Voice, to support a national mobilization effort to decriminalize drug possession. Open Philanthropy's criminal justice reform team believes YANA’s work could help reduce incarceration levels and generate public support for the implementation of more measured responses to drug use.

In March 2021, the grantee returned a portion of the funds; due to shifting circumstances on the ground, You Are Not Alone was unable to do the work originally covered by Open Philanthropy's funding.
