Open Philanthropy recommended two grants totaling $250,000 over two years to The People’s Lobby to support work on prosecutor accountability and on the implementation of the Pretrial Fairness Act, which ends money bail in Illinois. The Illinois legislature passed the Pretrial Fairness Act earlier this year, following years of work by The People’s Lobby and other members of the Coalition to End Money Bond.

This follows our July 2020 support for the People’s Lobby Education Institute and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
