This fund is to support the MBWA mission, which is to assist in ensuring the fair and even-handed administration of justice, particularly as applied to women of color. MBWA is similarly concerned with social policy and civil rights issues in the greater minority community. Each year, the MBWA offers 3 to 4 panel discussions, the opportunity to participate in various community service activities, and our Annual Ida B. Wells Awards Tea. MWA also co-sponsor diversity-related programs and events with our fellow affinity bar partners and other professional associations.
Blanche E. Braxton Bar Scholarship
The goal of the scholarship is to promote diversity in the legal profession in Massachusetts by providing financial assistance to a member of MBWA while she studies for the Uniform Bar Exam and Massachusetts Law administered by the Massachusetts Board of Bar Examiners. This scholarship is made possible through the generous donations of MBWA members and friends, and MBWA fundraising efforts.
