Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg the daughter of everyday working people of Brooklyn New York, who against all odds, studied the law, became the first female on the Harvard Law Review, became a champion of woman’s rights, and the first woman attorney to argue six cases in front of the Supreme court and win five.
Nominated to the Supreme Court, by President Clinton in 1993; Justice Ginsberg served 27 years as a liberal lion of the court, providing thoughtful majority opinions and stunning dissents throughout her years at the court.
Justice Ginsburg believed strongly in a living, evolving Constitution that is capable of change with the times, as our nation and communities stretching into a limitless future.
After fighting back, the inevitable march of pancreatic cancer for over a decade, she finally succumbed to the disease on September 18, 2020.
“Fight for the things that you care about. But do it in a way that will lead others to join you.”
Requiescat in pace
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg
1933 - 2020
