Thank You, Kirkland & Ellis!

As society grappled with the evident injustices against Black and Brown lives, many organizations, firms, and corporations publicly vowed to do their part to make a change towards creating a more equitable community for all. On June 5, 2020, Kirkland & Ellis, SEO Law partner and longtime supporter of SEO’s mission, announced its pledge to donate “$5 million over five years to support organizations focused on ending racism, achieving inclusion and advancing social justice.”

We’re thrilled to announce that SEO was selected as one of the organizations to benefit from this pledge. The donation will be used for general SEO Scholars operating needs, which will help sustain and strengthen our program that turns underserved, public high school students in New York City into college graduates. Thank you, Kirkland & Ellis, for helping us to close the opportunity gap for motivated, deserving high school students.
