Colorado Women Bar Association

In 1988, the Colorado Women’s Bar Association established a non-profit 501©(3) charitable corporation, first known as the Jennifer Robbins Fund, in memory of an activist lawyer dedicated to equal right for women and minorities.
Today, the Colorado Women’s Bar Association (CWBA) Foundation’s mission and purpose is to implement the charitable and educational work of the CWBA, that is, to promote the advancement of women in the law, and to protect and promote the welfare of all women.
