Iowa National Bar Association
The Iowa National Bar Association (INBA) is an affiliate of the National Bar Association (NBA). The NBA was founded in Des Moines, Iowa in August 1925 and the national office is now located in Washington, D.C.
The founders, George H. Woodson, S. Joe Brown, James B. Morris, Charles P. Howard, Sr. and Gertrude Rush, made application and were denied admission to local and national legal associations because of their race. These brave individuals decided to create their own association and made it their goal to fight segregation and legal racism. They advocated for equality, not only in the legal profession, but also in all phases of American life.
The INBA has undertaken the task of erecting a national monument in honor of the National Bar Association in Des Moines, Iowa.
