with trademark prosecution. John Koss worked with Mintz Levin summer associates on a variety of research projects for the organization. Robert Falk, General Counsel of the Human Rights Campaign, said, “As we move the frontiers of equality forward, Mintz Levin has been a steady partner, providing whatever support we need. The creativity the firm’s attorneys bring to their work allows us to expand our outreach to all Americans.” Indigenous Education Foundation of Tanzania The Indigenous Education Foundation of Tanzania builds and operates community-based secondary schools serving families who live in extreme poverty in rural Tanzania. Through its schools, the organization proactively creates a learning environment that values creativity, enhances critical thinking, and builds leadership among its students. The organization was originally incorporated in Oregon, and Mintz Levin worked with it to reincorporate in Massachusetts. Attorneys Adam Veness, Nate McConarty, and Anthony Hubbard assisted the organization in this process by forming a new entity in Massachusetts and merging the Oregon entity into the newly created Massachusetts entity. Iraqi Refugee Assistance Project The Iraqi Refugee Assistance Project organizes law students and attorneys to provide legal representation to Iraqi refugees seeking resettlement in the United States. During the past year, Mintz Levin continued its partnership with students from the chapter at Northeastern University School of Law. Attorneys Nick Cramb and Jamie Arterton and Project Analyst Adrienne Darrow are currently working with Northeastern students to co-counsel an Iraqi citizen whose work as an interpreter for the United States Armed Forces put him and his family at risk. In connection with this representation, attorneys supervised the law student teams, helped them identify available relief, and worked closely with them to prepare and file requests for reconsideration of the denial of the client’s refugee status and special immigrant visa. Island Creek Oysters Foundation Based in Duxbury, Massachusetts, the Island Creek Oysters Foundation, the charitable foundation of Island Creek Oysters, endeavors to promote sustainable aquaculture as a solution to world hunger. The foundation has long contributed to a variety of organizations, striving to give locally and globally. The foundation established relationships with a group of villages on the island of Zanzibar, Tanzania, helping the community start an oyster hatchery off the coast and thereby adding a sustainable, protein-rich resource to the villagers’ diet. In addition to its ongoing collaboration with villagers in Zanzibar, the organization has made a substantial impact in promoting tilapia fish farming in Haiti by working with the Caribbean Harvest Foundation. Former Mintz Levin attorney Joseph Messina and attorneys Anthony Hubbard and Sam Davenport provided general counsel to the Island Creek Oysters Foundation. Jericho Road Lawrence Jericho Road Lawrence was born out of the passionate desire of a small group of individuals wishing to address dramatic socioeconomicdisparitiesinGreaterLawrence,Massachusetts. In 2012, Mintz Levin was approached by one of our Boston- based referral agencies, the Lawyers Clearinghouse, regarding our involvement in Jericho Road’s pilot program on culturally inclusive boards. Although Lawrence’s population is over 70% Latino, the representation of Latinos/Latinas on nonprofit boards is poor. In partnership with the YWCA of Greater Lawrence, this pilot program provided a three-part training series to approximately 10 carefully selected Latino/ Latina professionals in the community who were interested in serving on local nonprofits’ boards. Attorneys Anthony Hubbard and Manny Vazquez designed and presented two interactive workshops; each participant was then matched with one of 10 preselected nonprofits, whose board members also participated in the training.
