How to Apply for a CJI Starving the Beast Fund Grant
Time & Location
About The Event
The CJI Leadership Circle is an innovative grant-making panel comprised of donors, donor-activists and community organizers impacted by injustice. They share authority and a passion for supporting meaningful, transformative and systemic change of the criminal justice system. Understanding the limited funding for progressive criminal justice organizing, this Circle was launched 20 years ago as a means of creating a new source of support for this critical work.
Continuing our collaboration with the Open Society Foundations, we are excited to fund community-based options that will reduce incarceration as a response to criminalized behaviors including drug use and related activities, sex work, and other survival behaviors. STB funding is intended to improve the capacity of community-based organizations to deliver resources, provide harm-reduction services, and address policy change that will limit police interactions around mental health, homelessness, and consenting adult behavior
