The National Black Prosecutors Association was established in 1983. It’s a professional member organization comprised of over 800 prosecutors in the United States. The NBPA’s mission is to recruit, train and advance the careers of minority attorneys as prosecutors at all levels of government. The annual convention serves, not only as a job fair forum, but, more importantly as a comprehensive legal training program for prosecutors.
