They served as an inspiration to me, and I hope through this Sparking a Change series, they can serve as an inspiration to you. I'm excited to introduce Biana Borukhovich, an attorney from New York who focuses…

Whether it be: Marian Wright Edelman (who has taken a stand to ensure every child has a healthy start), Ida B.
