Foley’s Racial Justice and Equity Practice Group has partnered with Black Connect to help eliminate the racial wealth gap facing Black Americans.
Black Connect is the only national membership and chapter-based organization dedicated solely to eliminating the racial wealth gap in America by increasing the number and success rate of Black-owned businesses. In addition to its programs and services, Black Connect provides a tools-based business and social network that enables entrepreneurial activities and promotes the socioeconomic growth and empowerment of the Black community.
As a partner, Foley will receive a monthly listing of Black Connect members needing business-related legal assistance and be available to help with pro bono or low-cost legal services on an ad hoc basis. The team also envisions partnering in special events and training opportunities to assist Black Connect in building the organization and assuring its success.
