Varnum Provides Support to Organizations Fighting Racism and Injustice
Varnum is committed to supporting efforts across the nation in demanding changes to end racism and ensuring social justice. In furtherance of our condemnation of racism and in the shadow of recent atrocities, the firm recently demonstrated our support of this movement with a meaningful contribution to organizations that support Black communities across our state. On July 21, we announced a $20,000 donation shared among the following Michigan-based organizations which focus on ending racism, eliminating racial disparities in health, education, and access to capital, and ensuring social justice:
- Grand Rapids Urban League
- Focus: HOPE
- Grand Rapids African American Health Institute
- Durfee Elementary-Middle School
Our advocacy for change neither starts nor ends with these contributions. Together with our community partners, Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Council and our pro bono legal efforts, we will maintain our long-term commitment and support of these important causes to end the injustice that has impacted people of color far too long.
