From Didi Barrett, New York State Assembly

Diana was a fighter -- on so many important fronts. I know I am a better person for having had her in my life. I first met Diana when she became CEO of Planned Parenthood of NYC and I was on the board. When she came to the Dyson Foundation our friendship continued over our shared passions for the beautiful Hudson Valley region, reproductive rights and the critical role of philanthropy in social change. Thoughtful, serious and determined, Diana made a profound difference in the world around her.
