A Juvenile Justice Funder Hits the Reset Button. What Happened?Apr 29, 2017
The Sierra Health Foundation is a California-based funder that describes its mission as forging “new paths to promote health and racial equity in partnership with communities, organizations and leaders.” Five years ago, it began working to reform California’s notoriously destructive juvenile justice reform system.
The Tow Foundation is another funder in this space, working mainly in New York and Connecticut. Among other things, it believes the media can be messengers for this change, and supports training and conferences for journalists and bloggers.
