The prison-to-school pipeline. Incarceration and the digital divide. How the child welfare system responds to parental substance use. The long quest for justice by those who suffered racially motivated torture at the hands of Chicago police.
These are just some of the cutting-edge projects being undertaken by the 2016 class of Soros Justice Fellows. The Open Society Foundations is pleased to announce an award of $1.2 million to help fund the work of these emerging and established leaders, who seek to challenge long-standing assumptions underlying the U.S. criminal justice system—and push for change.
