After the death of her famous mother, the former NY Congresswoman Bella Abzug, in 1998, in 2004 Liz co-founded the Bella Abzug Leadership Institute (known as BALI) a 501-c-3 not for profit leadership training organization that trains young women in high school and college and whose mandate is to “inspire women and girls to lead the future.” She has served as BALI’s President/CEO, since the organization’s founding. BALI works to provide debate training and other specific leadership skills as well as professional mentoring to high school and college level women so that they may become the proactive, principle driven, and visionary leaders of the 21st Century.
