Ahead of Mother’s Day, Let’s Remember and Support Moms Behind Bars

By Allana Jackson, Alexandra Williams, Nidhi Sahni, and Cora Daniels

This Chronicle of Philanthropy op-ed explores how funding criminal-justice reform and feminist movements could transform outcomes for women, especially Black women, girls, and nonbinary people.

Philanthropy’s Role in the Movement to Reimagine Criminal Justice
Date: Thursday, May 12, 2022
Time: 1 - 2 PM ET

What role can philanthropy play in movement building? In our report, Making the Case: Philanthropy’s Role in the Movement to Reimagine Criminal Justice, the authors detail the challenges that organizations and leaders who take a movement building approach face when fundraising, and offer guidance for funders on how to effectively support them.

Drawing from our report, this webinar will offer guidance on how to approach funding movements. During this webinar, you’ll:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of where resources are needed in the criminal justice reform movement
  • Understand what movement leaders need from funders to support their success
  • Learn about the mindsets and practices that can enable effective funding of movement leaders​
Can't make it live? Sign up anyway. We'll email out slides and a recording of the session to all registrants after the event.

This webinar is presented by Bridgespan’s Allana Jackson and Alexandra Williams, and features guest speakers Brittany White, decarceration director for LIVE FREE USA, and Nicole Boucher, chief strategy and operations officer at The Just Trust.
