Stephanie Mickle // Director of NBA PAC // National Bar Association Political Action Committee
Stephanie Mickle of The National Bar Association Political Action Committee joins us for an overview of PACs, how and why they work, and how you could use one. The National Bar Association was created in 1925 to give (primarily) African American lawyers, judges, law students, and other supporters a professional organization as the American Bar Association was still segregated and they were not allowed to become members. The NBA represents 66,000 members of the legal profession and has been part of the struggle for civil rights and justice since its inception. Last year their membership decided it was time to relaunch the political funding arm of the organization so we’ve invited Stephanie Mickle, the Director of the National Bar Association PAC to chat with us today. Join us to learn more about PACs, their rules, uses, and common misconceptions.
The National Bar Association Political Action Committee (NBAPAC) is a separate, voluntary committee that collects contributions from National Bar Association members to support candidates and incumbents from both sides of the aisle who support issues of importance to the National Bar Association.
Stephanie Mickle, Director of the National Bar Association Political Action Committee, is a native of Gainesville, Fl. She is an Attorney at Law and Legislative that graduated from Harvard University and is a former General Counsel for Sen. Bill Nelson.
