What is the Law Works Education Fund?
The Law Works Education Fund, a fiscally sponsored project of Sixteen Thirty Fund, engages bipartisan voices to advocate and educate 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?
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. Law Works helps these individuals become champions for the rule of law, our institutions and our democratic ideals.
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.
