A Better Balance (ABB) uses the power of the law to advance justice for workers, so they can care for themselves and their loved ones without jeopardizing their economic security.
Through legislative advocacy, direct legal services and strategic litigation, and public education, our expert legal team combats discrimination against pregnant workers and caregivers and advances supportive policies like paid sick time, paid family and medical leave, fair scheduling, and accessible, quality childcare and eldercare. When we value the work of providing care, which has been long marginalized due to sexism and racism, our communities and our nation are healthier and stronger.
ABB has a long track record of investing deeply in local and state work, improving the lives of women and caregivers while also paving the way to advancing federal policies. ABB is locally grounded, regionally networked, and has strong relationships at the national level. Our offices across the country work in an integrated way as one organization to systemically create change for all, while being attuned to uniquely local needs, challenges, and opportunities.
