GABWA, an organization open to all persons, regardless of race or sex, was founded in 1981 by a group of African American women who sought to form a voluntary bar organization that would 1) focus on women and children’s issues, 2) increase black female representation in the judiciary and in public offices, and 3) take a proactive stance on political issues. GABWA’s Political Action Committee and its work in vetting and endorsing political candidates is directly in-line with why GABWA was formed and the organization’s mission “to nurture, support and galvanize the power of Black women attorneys, advocate for women and children and empower our communities.”  GAWBA encourages each person to stay informed about the candidates, local races and the relevant issues and to exercise his/her right to vote!
