Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $125,000 to A La Defensa, via Tides Advocacy, to support work on prosecutor accountability in Los Angeles County. A La Defensa plans to use these funds to coordinate a workgroup of criminal justice organizations within the JusticeLA Coalition that will promote accountability demands among community members through public forums and other events.

This falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
