The Fund recently revealed grant recipients, including six projects backed by the Foundation, combining legal aid with comprehensive support to address crime’s underlying causes. Initiatives encompass aiding Black youth in the justice system, diversion programs, empowering Black girls and women against sexual violence, and legal workshops for racialized youth.

This partnership underscores a commitment to equitable justice and community welfare.
