This year, to honor Black History Month, PADC is partnering with the Barristers’ Association of Philadelphia to collect monetary donations to support the Amber Racine Scholarship Fund.

Each year, the Barristers’ Association awards scholarships to students of color attending local area law schools. The scholarships are given to students who demonstrate leadership ability, academic achievement, and a commitment to community service and professional development.

To donate: click here to donate using the PayPal option, or send a check made payable to Philadelphia Association of Defense Counsel (please include “MLK/Barristers” in the memo section) to Lauren Steins, 1601 Market Street, Suite 3400, Philadelphia, PA 19103. We will close the Fundraiser on 3/8.

Should you have any questions please contact Lauren Steins ( or Jennifer Coatsworth (
