We authored and sent a letter to the Senate expressing our strong opposition to the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett— signed by 95 groups that support the rights of workers to care for themselves and their loved ones without compromising their economic security. As we express in the letter, the rushed confirmation process currently underway is a disgrace. It undermines the significance of the Supreme Court as an institution and disrespects Justice Ginsburg’s legacy. Furthermore, Judge Barrett’s record has made clear that she is opposed to the rights of working people and unsympathetic to the needs of their families—being a successful woman and mother does not make Judge Barrett an appropriate successor to Justice Ginsburg.
We invite you to join us on Monday, May 4th, 2020, from 6:30 to 9:00 pm at the beautiful Manhattan Penthouse to honor Jennifer Hyman, CEO, Rent the Runway and outspoken advocate for gender equality and treating workers fairly, Chai Feldblum, former Commissioner at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, author, activist and partner at the law firm of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, Juju Chang, Emmy Award-winning journalist, and Natasha Jackson, A Better Balance Community Advocate for pregnant workers.
Our annual Celebration is an inspirational evening celebrating hard-won victories in the fight against injustice, as we advance and defend the rights of women, caregivers, and families in the workplace.

UPDATE: We have been closely monitoring the growing concerns around COVID-19. After much deliberation, we’ve made the decision to postpone our Spring Celebration benefit on May 4. Every year we look forward to connecting with our A Better Balance community at our benefit to celebrate the incredible progress we have made for working families and caregivers. But the health and well-being of our honorees, attendees, and staff is ABB’s top priority. We will now host this celebratory benefit on October 6, 2020.
A Better Balance is putting all our efforts into pushing for paid sick leave laws to help the 33 million workers that have no paid sick time. A Better Balance needs your support more than ever to fight for workers! Please donate today!
