Aligning with the firm’s commitment to being an active agent of change, On June 4, Cooley announced that it will donate $450,000 to the Equal Justice Initiative, which works to end mass incarceration and excessive punishment, to challenge racial and economic injustice and to protect basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in America.

Cooley’s Black Attorney Affinity Group, together with others in the fight, has compiled a resource kit to deepen and expand understanding of anti-racism and allyship and to encourage education, engagement and action.

The Capital Markets Team is proud to be at a law firm where firm leadership has chosen to take another meaningful stand and endeavor to be an agent of change. America will be defined in how it responds to this crisis, and we intend to be a part of the solution in advocating for equality and justice and fighting racism against the Black community.
