After the Sandy Hook tragedy, WDN got involved to ensure that the voices and leadership of women and people of color would be part of the national debate. Betsy has also served on the Board of Directors of Bioneers, a preeminent environmental and social justice organization, and recently gave a TEDxWomen talk on the need to fill the gap in women’s leadership at all levels of society. She is launching a new social enterprise called The Founding Family, a new framework for coalescing and supporting the emerging new American majority.
