Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement

​Fox Swibel Levin & Carroll LLP is strongly committed to diversity, equity and inclusion and proudly heralds Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day on January 16.  No one in the history of our country has been a more heroic example of devotion to these principles than Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was – he personified the struggle of the victims of racial injustice to rise up peacefully, with dignity, grace and resolve.  His eloquence and courage left an indelible imprint on the fabric of American society, and we today still recall, recount and celebrate his indomitable spirit.  What is a greater legacy than to be remembered with a nationwide day of reflection, action and service to our communities, that we may one day overcome all hatred, bigotry and intolerance that still sadly afflicts our society.  Let us applaud Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day and may it serve as a reminder of our goal of greater tolerance and understanding among people of all socio-economic and cultural backgrounds, religions, races, genders, sexual orientations and abilities.
