Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $65,000 to Action St. Louis, via the ArchCity Defenders, to support work on prosecutor accountability in St. Louis. Since 2018, Action St. Louis has led a coalition of 10 organizations working on prosecutor accountability. This grant will support staffing to coordinate program activities such as court watching, data collection, and media projects.

This falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
