The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $50,000 to Durham for All to support hiring a fellowship coordinator for prosecutor accountability. Durham for All’s fellowship program allows justice-involved leaders to lead prosecutor accountability work by coordinating meetings with elected officials, organizing community members to show community support, and providing ongoing mentorship, political education and leadership development. The fellowship coordinator will coach the fellows, coordinate logistics, and help develop strategies.

This discretionary grant falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
