Taylor Porter, through its Diversity Committee, will host the “Dialogue on Race Louisiana” series at its offices, beginning Tuesday, August 3, 2021, and every Tuesday thereafter through September 7th. Dialogue on Race Louisiana (DORLA) is a nonprofit organization that “is dedicated to the elimination of racism through education, action and transformation.”
The DORLA series, to be hosted by Taylor Porter for the sixth consecutive year, involves a round-table dialogue about race among 15 participants led by a DORLA facilitator. Participants are required to attend the first session and commit to at least four of the following five sessions. Each weekly Tuesday session will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The cost for the DORLA series is $50. Registration information for the DOR program can be found here.

Taylor Porter’s BUILD (Building Unity, Inclusion, & Legal Diversity) community outreach program bridges the firm’s diversity efforts with its traditional community outreach and volunteer work. In addition to hosting the DORLA series, Taylor Porter has partnered with organizations such as VIPS, Mentorship Academy, White Hills Elementary, Cristo Rey Baton Rouge Franciscan High School, Habitat for Humanity, and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Baton Rouge to reach and provide assistance to diverse segments of our community.
