Join us for AIPLA’s Women in IP DC Community Service Event:
Join us as we partner with Comfort Cases® to pack backpacks with essentials and comfort items, bringing comfort and dignity to children entering foster care.
There are nearly 437,500 youth in the foster care system in the United States. Of the thousands of youth who enter the system each year, most arrive carrying little more than the clothes on their backs. If they are afforded the opportunity to collect any personal belongings, many are then given a trash bag in which to place and carry their personal items. It is a time of great upheaval and instability, and their first foster home placement is unlikely to be their last.
Many youths in foster care will be moved from home to home multiple times, carrying their life’s treasures in a trash bag. Comfort Cases’ mission as a charity is to provide a proper bag, filled with comfort and essential items, to these brave youth in foster care on their journey to find their forever home.

Finnegan is deeply saddened by the death of our colleague Donald R. Dunner, who passed away on October 16, 2019, after a life of dedication and inspiration to many in IP law. Don was in a category all his own with his talent and distinct knowledge of IP law. His direct approach and enthusiasm for work and life touched everyone who worked with him, and we will miss him dearly.
