Black LGBTQ+ Legal Professionals Caucus
In 2021, the National Bar Association’s LGBTQ+ Division and the National LGBTQ+ Bar Association embarked on an exciting new joint endeavor: the Black LGBTQ+ Legal Professionals Caucus. This Caucus serves as a networking and supportive space for Black- and LGBTQ-identifying lawyers, judges, law students, paralegals, and other legal professionals to work together across organizations for mutual success. In 2023, the group plans to resume meeting virtually in a safe and supportive community, with annual in-person meetings and a Caucus dinner to be held in connection with the LGBTQ+ Bar’s annual Lavender Law® Conference and Career Fair. From time to time, the Caucus may hold educational, entertainment, and CLE events, which will be open to all members of both the NBA and the LGBTQ+ Bar, including allies.
All Black LGBTQ+ legal professionals are invited to join the Caucus by completing the membership form below. Please note: you must affirm on the form that you are (1) Black-identifying, (2) a member of the LGBTQ+ community, and, (3) in the legal profession. Once approved, you will be added to a Google Groups listserv for ease of communication; only Caucus members, LGBTQ+ Bar staff, and NBA LGBTQ+ Division Board members will have access to posts on the listserv. For questions, please write firstname.lastname@example.org.
