Danielle Sered and Common Justice Receive Grant from Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

Common Justice, directed by Stoneleigh Foundation Fellow Danielle Sered, recently received a major matching grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to address cycles of youth violence as a health concern. The grant was awarded through the Foundation's Local Funding Partnerships program, which supports community-based projects that develop new, collaborative, creative solutions to improve health and health care for society's most vulnerable people. It matches local project funding from the Blue Ridge Foundation, the Daniel and Florence Guggenheim Foundation and the Jacob and Valeria Langeloth Foundation. As the nation's largest philanthropy devoted exclusively to improving the health and health care of all Americans, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation works with a diverse group of organizations and individuals to identify solutions and achieve comprehensive, meaningful and timely change.
