Founded in 2016, Cristo Rey Baton Rouge Franciscan High is a private, Catholic school dedicated to educating young people to become men and women of faith, purpose and service. The school belongs to a national network of unique schools whose focus is preparing students for college acceptance, successful careers and inspiring them to drive change in their communities by operating as both a school and an employment agency.
Through the BUILD program, Taylor Porter provides assistance to several diverse community and nonprofits year-round, thereby affecting diverse segments of the community in a most positive and rewarding way. In 2017, Taylor Porter’s Diversity Committee launched a firm-wide BUILD (Building Unity, Inclusion, & Legal Diversity) Community Outreach Program. The program was implemented by the Taylor Porter Diversity Committee and designed to further bridge and support the Firm’s diversity efforts, combined with its more than 106 years of traditional community outreach and volunteer work. Whether serving on the boards of directors of nonprofit organizations or making contributions to worthwhile causes, Taylor Porter’s attorneys and staff are actively involved in the community.
