We hope you'll come celebrate with the CJI extended family as we launch our anniversary year! We can't believe that we've been making grants collaboratively for 15 years! Since the Criminal Justice Initiative was founded in 2001, CJI has:
- Made grants totaling over $1,800,000! (With our grants this year, we will have given away over $2 million!)
- Supported over 50 small grassroots organizations working to transform the criminal justice system!
- Pushed the progressive edge of funding by supporting theleadership of those most impacted!
Each year, we raise the money we give away, and this year, if we make our goal to raise $15,000, we will be able to give away $250,000! Almost double what we gave in grants last year! That means we'll be able to support the work of more grassroots organizations in this growing movement.
But to reach our ambitious goal, we need you!
Come celebrate with us and help us kick off our anniversary year! Click the flyer above or R.S.V.P. here.
If you can't make it, please consider making a donation of $15, $150, or $1,500 in honor of our 15th year, and help us continue to grow this movement!
Hope to see you on the 26th!
All of us at the Criminal Justice Initiative
