Support The New York State Association of Black and Puerto Rican Legislators

The New York State Association of Black and Puerto Rican Legislators, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization based in Albany, New York. We bring together the most influential African-American, Hispanic, Caribbean and Asian leaders from every corner of the Empire State and beyond. Every year during President’s Day weekend, we host a three-day legislative conference in Albany, NY featuring multiple events. You’ll leave inspired and motivated to change the lives of young people for the better.

For over 47 years, we’ve been raising money for minority youth entering college. Our charity organization was created on October 11, 1985 and falls under Section 402 of the New York Not-for-Profit Incorporation Law. We seek to change lives by:

  • Empowering youth to continue their education
  • Educating others on the importance of financial aid for college
