Collaborators for criminal justice advocacy
This document from 2012 details how foundations collaborated to change criminal justice policy in California. Funders for Safety and Justice in California was renamed Californians for Safety and Justice. CSJ was created as a “project” within the larger Tides Center, and thus has no financial statements of its own. Its three-person steering committee consists of representatives of the Rosenberg Foundation, California Endowment, and George Soros’ Open Society Foundations.
Grant documents show the major non-profits providing support to CSJ and writing affinity grants were the Rosenberg Foundation, California Endowment, Ford Foundation, the Atlantic Philanthropies, and the Open Society Foundations. Other contributors included the Fund for Nonviolence and The Women’s Foundation.
