Jan is immensely proud of her work with the National Women’s Law Center on Title IX issues, focusing on gender equity in athletics. Her contributions have helped the most at-risk girls in New Jersey high schools receive an equal opportunity to participate in athletics. “This cause is near and dear to my heart; my parents, Joan and Jim Bernstein, worked tirelessly in support of Title IX, resulting in the creation of the first three athletic teams for girls in Tenafly.” Today, Tenafly High School boasts ten girls’ teams and multiple championships over the years. “I hope to continue my parents’ legacy and protect future opportunities for girls to experience the lifelong benefits of playing sports, including better health, improved academics, higher self-esteem and leadership skills.”
