“Legacy is about more than just money, it’s about the values and memories that will live on in my children and grandchildren.”
— Barbara Klein
The prejudice I experienced as a child led me to a life of social justice activism. Whether it was running for political office, working in the entertainment industry or volunteering at Lamp Community on Skid Row, I’ve always viewed my work through this lens. My activism has colored my life, and hopefully made a dent in the enormity of need.
