The Central Texas Food Bank's mission is to nourish hungry people and lead the community in the fight against hunger.
Team FVF spent a morning volunteering in the CTFB Kitchen. We helped prepare 1572 meals, washed countless dishes, made pizza dough, and laughed at how silly we looked in hair (and beard!) nets. WE helped support the Summer Meals that Matter program. More Austin area families face hunger during the summer months than any other time of year. Higher utility bills and the absence of free or reduced-price school meals make this a very hard time for families and seniors in our community.
A special message to the friends and potential new clients of FVF Law:
FVF’s client contract has, for a long time, contained the following termination clause: “FVF Law is a values-driven law firm, and because diversity is a value we support, “good cause” [for termination] shall include any expression by the client of intolerance with respect to race, ethnicity, gender, religion, or sexual orientation.”
Now more than ever, FVF recognizes the global need to combat racism proactively, and to do so with more than just words. This firm was built on the mission of being better. Better lawyers. Better advocates. Better people.
We all know being better requires an ongoing commitment to learning, growth, introspection, and change. We enthusiastically embrace that commitment and hereby pledge to do more than just talk about it. Stay tuned on our blog and facebook page for more about what FVF is doing to back this important global effort.
In the meantime, we would respectfully request new clients who find their own views incompatible with this pledge to consider contacting another firm to handle their case. In any case, we invite you to provide honest feedback by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Josh and Aaron, and all of FVF Law
