The Open Philanthropy Project recommended that Cari Tuna personally contribute $117,300 to the New York State Committee of the Working Families Party. This contribution is intended to support the Working Families Party’s work on criminal justice issues, including electing prosecutors who are supportive of criminal justice reform, and not other priorities of the Working Families Party. The funding will allow the Working Families Party to recruit, interview, and support potentially reform-minded prosecutor candidates throughout New York State.

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