We exist for the purpose of enhancing our professional strength and skill for the benefit of the Black community in its struggle for full social political and economic rights.
We seek to utilize the vehicles of the law to advance the fight against racism (white supremacy) and the inequities it produces.
We produce justice.

We are the legal arm of the Movement for Black Liberation.
