Kaiser Permanente’s community involvement uniquely pairs grant funding with 65 years of clinical expertise, medical research, and volunteerism to support prevention-focused, evidence-based programs that are expanding access to care and creating healthy environments. Kaiser Permanente recently awarded Exonerated Nation c/o The Praxis Project a $75,000.00 grant that will help more people in this community get access to the resources they need to lead a healthy life.
“Kaiser Permanente is proud to support the work of Exonerated Nation. Only 3% of exonerated Californians receive compensation for the years of their life lost to unjust incarceration, and all exonerees face barriers to employment and reentry compounded by lack of access to state services for ex-prisoners. This exoneree-led organization can help address trauma and break down stigmas, helping lift up the marginalized and improve the safety of the communities we serve.”
-Senior Vice President and Area Manager
Jeff Collins, Kaiser Permanente East Bay
“We at Exonerated Nation appreciate Kaiser for recognizing the necessary need of this exonerated community and want to thank them for their commitment to their freedom, dignity, and healing.”
Obie Anthony, Exonerated Nation
