Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Grant Supports High School Debate Team in Washington, DC

Boston, MA, January 13, 2014 – The Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Corp., a nonprofit, tax-exempt entity established by attorneys from the law firm of Brown Rudnick LLP, awarded a Community Grant to Thurgood Marshall Academy in Washington, DC for camera equipment that students on the debate team can use to record practice sessions. Brown Rudnick supports a number of debate and mock trial programs including the award-winning New York City Urban Debate League.

Josh Biederman, Thurgood Marshall Academy teacher and grant applicant, said “As a law-themed high school, our mission is to prepare students to succeed in college and to actively engage in our democratic society. The debate team links students from DC’s most underserved community with a valuable educational experience that connects them to global discussions about economics, social justice, the environment, international relations, and local politics. Using the camera equipment to record practice sessions will allow students to reflect on their own performance by analyzing their verbal pacing, poise, and professionalism as they present their case for an issue.”
Commenting on the grant, Al Wallis, Executive Director of the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Corp., said, “The Foundation has seen the value of debate teams in education. By exposing students to a variety of local and global issues and by promoting the skills of research, critical thinking, and advocacy, debate builds the foundation for students to become active, socially engaged citizens. We are delighted to support this program.”

Created to support front-line educators who often do not have a voice in funding decisions, the Community Grants subsidize small, concrete projects, which will improve inner-city education within Boston, Hartford, London, Providence, New York, or Washington DC within the coming year. The Foundation will generally consider grant applications monthly and award grants in an amount totaling not more than $2000 in any one month. The grant applications and an explanation of the program can be found at
