Fullerton Beck is not idly standing by as our country weathers the COVID-19 pandemic and the wave of racial injustice. The White Plains-based law firm is giving back.
Over the past few months, Fullerton Beck has made donations to City Harvest and The Equal Justice Initiative. City Harvest is New York City’s largest food rescue organization, helping to feed the more than 1.5 million New Yorkers who are struggling to put meals on their tables, which now includes those who have lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the havoc it’s caused on businesses.
Additionally, in honor of Juneteenth and Black Lives Matter, Fullerton Beck donated to the Equal Justice Initiative, a nonprofit that provides legal representation to people who have been illegally convicted, unfairly sentenced, or abused in state jails and prisons. The organization challenges the death penalty and excessive punishment and provides re-entry assistance to formerly incarcerated people.
Fullerton Beck, a women-owned law firm, prides itself on being a diverse and inclusive organization and as such, during this time of unrest, its founding partners, Eileen Fullerton and Katrine Beck, encouraged their lawyers and professional staff to continue to reflect, learn, discuss and engage to help bring about change. The firm has committed that, “together we can make a change.”
