Google Gives $11.5 Million to Reform the Criminal Justice System

Google has committed over $5 million to organizations advancing racial justice since 2015. Two years ago, the company granted $2.35 million to support leaders, including #BlackLivesMatter co-founder Patrisse Cullors; Chris Chatmon, who leads Oakland’s African American Male Achievement Initiative; and Raj Jayadev, who founded the criminal justice reform organization Silicon Valley De-Bug. Last year, Google gave $3 million in grants to four organizations working to help eliminate racial bias in educational systems: San Francisco’s My Brother and Sister’s Keeper program, Oakland’s Roses in Concrete Community School, the tech-enabled college success startup Beyond 12, and the national Equal Justice Initiative.
