The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $57,000 to Court Watch Nola (CWN) to support coordination of a coalition of community groups working on criminal justice reform in New Orleans. CWN plans to use these funds to support administration, coordination, and logistics work to collaborate with other local organizations to develop shared positions on key reforms and to produce a position paper summarizing their shared conclusions.

This discretionary grant follows our November 2018 general support grant and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
