Grant investigator: Chloe Cockburn

This page was reviewed but not written by the grant investigator. A La Defensa staff also reviewed this page prior to publication.

Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $280,000 over two years to La Defensa, via Tides Advocacy, for general support of its criminal justice reform work. La Defensa seeks to organize and empower impacted community members to advocate for decarceration in Los Angeles County, which currently contains the largest jail system in the country.

This follows our January 2020 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
