Tue, 4/17, 6:30pm-9:00pm: Join Congresswoman Maloney & other feminist activists at the 4th Annual Bella Abzug Leadership Institute Awards

The Bella Abzug Leadership Institute (BALI) utilizes the signature leadership skills of the late New York Congresswoman Bella S. Abzug (1920-1998) to mentor and train high school and college age women in the development of confidence and skills needed to become effective, dynamic and visionary leaders as well as active and creative participants in civic, political, corporate and community life.

Hope you can join me at the following event.  It's always a great function, with inspiring activists, entertaining acts, great company and delicious food.  It's also a valuable networking event for both the non-profit and for-profit world. 

Some of you may know that the late trailblazing Congresswoman Bella Abzug was the first Jewish woman elected to the House of Representatives.  What you may not know is that she was a Hunter College alumna and the Bella Abzug Leadership Institute has had a long-term relationship with Hunter, with its office located within the campus. 

I have a personal connection to BALI, since it was the BALI conference in 2007 that inspired me to work in feminism for the rest of my life.  BALI founder and president Liz Abzug has been a personal inspiration, mentor and friend, with her down-to-earth nature, kindness and willingness to work with feminists of all generations. 

I hope you will join me tomorrow night.  I am copying Yu Wai above, who can assist you with any questions.
