About The Greater Atlanta Black Prosecutors Association

Founded in 1983, the National Black Prosecutors Association (NBPA) is the only organization dedicated to the hiring, retention and promotion of Black prosecutors. The Association’s membership is comprised of prosecutors in the continental United States, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and in Canada. It includes both chief and line prosecutors from local, state and federal offices. In addition to prosecutors, the association’s membership includes law students, former prosecutors, and law enforcement personnel.

In 2014, eight prosecutors determined that the "Black Mecca" needed a local chapter of the of the national organization, and the Greater Atlanta chapter was born. The goal of our charter members was to advance the art of fair and firm prosecution; to encourage legal education and professional development; to provide and promote fellowship and support for black prosecutors; to increase camaraderie and nationwide networking among black prosecutors; to encourage the recruitment, retention, and promotion of black prosecutors within city, county, state, and federal offices; to uphold the honor and dignity of the bar; and to perpetuate the history of the Association and the memory of its members.

 

While our charter members have gone on to become writers, administrators, elected prosecutors and judges,  today the chapter continues to uphold and further the original mission, while also catering to the needs of the modern prosecutor.
