Firm Assists in Pro Bono Merger to Help Youth Learn Through the Arts

Jenner & Block recently helped its pro bono client, The School Street Movement, in its successful merger with another nonprofit organization to create a new entity dedicated to reaching at-risk youth through the performing, visual and literary arts.

Under the new name of School Street Arts Movement, the Chicago-based organization will help “communicate healthy, esteem-building messages to youth, especially those living in economically disadvantaged communities” through popular dance, music and exposing children to culturally diverse role models. 

Associates Christine L. Childers and David S. Drachler and Partner Geoffrey M. Davis provided corporate and tax advice in the merger.
