Join Subject Matter in donating to Essie Justice Group
Subject Matter connects inspiring storytelling and meaningful change by providing funds and other resources to documentaries that highlight social issues and by awarding corresponding grants to nonprofits tackling the featured topics.
We were incredibly moved by Kristal's story in A WOMAN ON THE OUTSIDE and the work Essie Justice Group is doing to address the harms of mass incarceration on women and communities.
A WOMAN ON THE OUTSIDE is receiving a $20,000 grant to help launch their impact campaign. Strategies include providing advocacy groups with material to host their own AWOTO screenings, and hosting community screenings and talk-backs that bring together directly-affected families.
Essie Justice Group is receiving at $10,000 grant to help fund one of their Healing to Advocacy Program cohorts, a network of Black and Brown women with incarcerated loved ones disrupting the cyclical impacts of the criminal justice system through breaking isolation, healing trauma, leadership development, organizing, and building political power.
