Abby was Legal Director at Lamda Legal Defense from 1983 to 1988, and served on its Board of Directors for seven years in the late 1990s and early 2000s. She served on the Board of the ACLU for Tennessee for 20 years and has helped found several different Tennessee LGBTQ groups over the years. "Helia is a saint for putting up with me," said Rubenfeld. "I spoke at a plenary and then we got married," said Rubenfeld. "Seriously."
