Racial Justice & Equity

Community Partnerships

Foley attorneys partner with local organizations throughout the United States to engage in outreach to the communities in which we practice. One special example of that is the firm’s nationwide partnership with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, in which we are striving to increase that outreach by focusing on a social service agency serving primarily economically disadvantaged communities with significant Black populations. Each of our offices will be partnering and assisting with their local Clubs’ goal of assuring that success is within reach for every young person who enters their doors. These local partnerships will allow the firm to lend help in the areas that the Clubs, and students, most need it. Committees formed in each office are working to make sure that Foley attorneys and staff have amazing opportunities to work with the Clubs’ kids in meaningful and impactful ways. There are many opportunities while we respect local COVID restrictions, and we look forward to expanding our work with the Clubs and the kids as the year progresses. We will also be providing pro bono services to the Clubs in areas where they need legal assistance.
