Roy is a lifelong advocate for financial literacy. He is the founder of the Credit Abuse Resistance Education of Central Florida Chapter, which educates high school and college students on the responsible use of credit and other fundamentals of financial literacy, as well as the potential consequences of poor money management and credit card and student loan abuse.

In 2015, Roy served on The Florida Bar Diversity and Inclusion Committee and helped establish a two-day intensive trial skills program geared toward minority trial lawyers, the first of its kind offered in Orlando, featuring jurists from the State Circuit and Federal benches.
