Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Vera Institute of Justice

New York, New York



The institute’s mission is to drive change, and build and improve justice systems that ensure fairness, promote safety and strengthen communities. This grant helped establish the SAFE Cities Network and to develop a $3 million Catalyst Fund to provide direct support to cities for immigration detention and deportation cases.
