May 10, 2010

Mr. Snipes was honored at New York Urban League's 45th Annual Frederick Douglass Awards Dinner for the Firm's efforts in developing the Pipeline Crisis/Winning Strategies Initiative. Mr. Snipes received the prestigious Frederick Douglass Medallion in recognition of his "distinguished leadership toward equal opportunity." In accepting the award, he acknowledged Mr. Schroeder as a co-founder of the project and explained that the "private business sector – from Wall Street to Main Street – must participate more actively in shaping laws and policies that assure equality of opportunity and justice" in order to get more young black men in the pipeline to higher education and professional endeavors like banking and law.
