Alvin Williams is co-founder and the current President and CEO of Black America’s Political    Action Committee (BAMPAC). BAMPAC is a non-partisan federal PAC whose primary mission is to mobilize support for African American candidates and candidates generally who advocate a common sense approach in resolving the important issues facing America in the 21st century. Over the last thirteen years, BAMPAC has emerged as one of the nation’s premiere Political Action Committees. During his tenure, BAMPAC’s political donor base has grown to over 137,000 donors, and has generated more than $1.6 million in direct and assisted contributions to various candidates seeking office at the local, state, and federal levels. BAMPAC is currently the largest minority PAC and ranks among the top PACs among 4,000 in the United States. BAMPAC actively advocates its core issues through media campaigns; provides quantitative and qualitative analysis on issues of importance to its growing constituency; and promotes the tenets of democracy and political action globally.

Throughout his career, Williams has been committed to demonstrating that the African American political viewpoint is not monolithic. Drawing upon over 15 years of dedicated service to the public policy arena, Mr. Williams has worked to assure that BAMPAC is an organization that takes a common sense approach to the pressing issues of the day. BAMPAC-supported candidates seeking office on all levels of government are well equipped with the strategic, financial, and tactical resources necessary to wage a formidable campaign.
