Join a conversation with the 45th Attorney General of Massachusetts Andrea Joy Campbell on her first year as the Commonwealth's top lawyer, fighting for criminal legal reform, and advocating for the State's most vulnerable! After overcoming tremendous hardship early in life, Campbell was the first in her family to attend and graduate both college and law school. After law school, she went on to serve as a legal services and employment attorney before serving as legal counsel to then-Governor Deval Patrick. Campbell was the first woman to represent District 4 on the Boston City Council in 2015, eventually being unanimously elected as City Council President in 2018 - the first Black woman to hold the title. In January 2023, Campbell was sworn in as Attorney General of Massachusetts becoming the first Black woman and woman of color to hold the position. Attorney General Andrea Campbell's full bio.
