Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $200,000 over two years to A New Way of Life (ANWOL) to support its civic engagement work on criminal justice reform in Los Angeles. ANWOL, founded by formerly incarcerated leader Susan Burton, organizes and mobilizes formerly incarcerated people as advocates for social change and personal transformation.

This follows our April 2020 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
