Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $200,000 to Voices of Community Activists and Leaders (VOCAL-NY) to support work on prosecutor accountability in Manhattan. VOCAL-NY intends to use this funding to recruit and convene a broad coalition of groups to develop and promote accountability demands to reduce incarceration, and educate voters through candidate forums and a voter guide.

This follows our June 2018 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
