Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $15,000 to Court Watch NOLA (CWN) for general support. CWN observes and collects data on practices used in New Orleans courtrooms, and is advocating for changes to arrest and detention practices during the COVID-19 pandemic. It intends to use this funding to maintain its operations during the pandemic and to provide stipends to staff and interns.

This follows our December 2019 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
