What is Law Works Education Fund?
Law Works Education Fund, a fiscally sponsored project of the Sixteen Thirty Fund, a 501(c)4 social welfare organization, engages bipartisan voices in advocacy and educating the public on the importance of the rule of law, democratic norms, independent law enforcement entities, and the integrity of our legal institutions.
Why do we think this project is a good idea?
Democracy Fund Voice believes that the rule of law, checks and balances, and a strong and trusted judiciary are essential features of our democratic system. The Law Works Education Fund works with partners in the legal, judicial, national security, and law enforcement communities, as well as current and former elected and appointed officials from both sides of the aisle, to communicate the importance of these concepts to the American people. By mobilizing these champions for the rule of law, Law Works Education Fund is helping defend our institutions within all three branches of government and the foundational system of checks and balances that holds our leaders accountable.
How is Democracy Fund Voice supporting Law Works Education Fund?
Democracy Fund Voice approved a six-month grant to the Law Works Education Fund in the amount of up to $200,000 for 2018.
