Civil Rights Corps is a nonprofit organization that advocates for prison and criminal justice reform, with a “goal of resensitizing the legal system and our culture to the injustice and brutality that characterize the contemporary American criminal system.”1.
In June 2019, the NFL awarded $2 million worth of grants to eight nonprofit organizations, including Civil Rights Corps, to support their social justice causes. The NFL explained their goal is to “support programs and initiatives that reduce barriers to opportunity.” 2
