"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."
