The Amistad Long Island Black Bar Association

Welcome To Our New Site

The Amistad Long Island Black Bar Association was founded in 1996. Formerly, the organization was known as the Amistad Suffolk Black Bar Association before the organization expanded to both the Nassau and Suffolk regions.

Amistad was created to foster community, professional development, and growth among attorneys of color in the Long Island area. As J. Stewart Moore, one of Amistad’s founding members and its most-recent past president has said, “Amistad is all about history.” This is demonstrated even in the organization’s name.

Amistad seeks to continue the tradition of providing opportunities for networking, leadership, and professional growth to attorneys in the practice of law who work and/or live on Long Island.

Amistad actively provides supportive environments for law students, judges, and attorneys of color in all walks of the profession.

Amistad includes among its members judges, prosecutors, lawyers in private practice and in the public service. We are proud of Amistad’s history, and we look forward to many more years of continued growth and leadership.
