Coalition of Bar Associations of Color (CBAC) was established in 1992 and is
comprised of the Hispanic National Bar
Association, the National
Bar Association, the National
Native American Bar Association, and the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association. Leaders
from these organizations meet annually to discuss issues of mutual concern and
to advocate in support of our shared interests with the executive branch and
with elected officials.
