President's Welcome

Dear Massachusetts Black Women Attorneys (MBWA) Members, Supporters and Friends,

It is a privilege and honor to serve as the President for MBWA for a second term. MBWA has been a great source of support and sisterhood for not only me, but so many other women throughout the Commonwealth.

Each year we hope to build upon the legacy of the women who founded and led this wonderful organization as we continue our important fight for justice and equality for all. MBWA is committed to providing opportunities for networking and exchange of ideas. We promote leadership and advancement of black women attorneys through professional education. In doing so, we strive to create and nurture relationships with local bar associations, businesses, and community organizations.

On behalf of the entire MBWA Board of Directors, I would like to thank every smart and generous attorney, judge, and professor, who has volunteered their time, knowledge and resources as part of our effort to benefit the larger MBWA community. Our work could not be accomplished without this support for which we are grateful and will continue to honor by our unwavering commitment to serving the members of this phenomenal organization.

Best regards,
Tinia L. Snow, Esq.
MBWA President
2018-2020
