The New York State Association of Black, Puerto Rican, Hispanic & Asian Legislators Inc. (The Association), membership consists of New York State Legislators of Minority descent. The Association’s fundamental purpose consists of the following: to promote the needs of the common good, to educate, enhance and empower minority communities, to maintain an interest in racial justice within New York State, to encourage the productive development of physical and mental health, and to enhance access for economic mobility within our communities.
Historically, The Association’s Legislative Conference is a highly anticipated annual event attended by thousands, who include state and local Legislators, Community Stakeholders, Business Leaders, Minority Entrepreneurs, Clergy Leaders, Seniors, Young Professionals and Students. Our Legislative Conference has and will continue to engage the public at its annual conference through the presentation of issue- focused workshops held Saturday during the conference. The Association’s annual Conference serves as the arena for change, resolution and dialogue including but not limited to the following; discussions of Health Care Inequities, Economics & Impact of the Marijuana Industry, Housing Insecurities, Criminal Justice Reform, Enhancing Equitable Distribution of Wealth, Closing Disparities within the Educational System, Breaking Glass ceilings that disrupt Diversity & Inclusion within the Work Force and many more engaging topics.
With the help of our key Sponsors, The Association will continue to expand its mission and focus throughout the year.
