The Skadden Foundation awarded Dorcas R. Gilmore a Flom Memorial Incubator Grant to support the creation of a Solidarity Economies Legal Needs Assessment. Through a series of community conversations and listening sessions, the Solidarity Economies Legal Needs Assessment will identify a range of existing and emerging solidarity economy efforts in Black communities in Baltimore and assess how legal services could support and/or accelerate these efforts.
The mission of the Flom Memorial Incubator Grant is to support novel projects undertaken by former Skadden Fellows. These grants were made possible by a generous testamentary bequest of Mr. Joseph H. Flom, as well as significant donations in Mr. Flom’s memory by Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher, and Flom partners and others in the community.
The Warnock Foundation named BASE co-founder Parag Khandhar one of its Winter 2015 Baltimore Innovation Journal winners; more information here.
