We are excited to share that TIME Magazine included A Better Balance and our Co-Founder and Co-President Dina Bakst on a list of “16 People and Groups Fighting for a More Equal America.” We are incredibly honored by this recognition and to be fighting for a more equal America alongside so many incredible activists and advocates.
