RBG set stage for better tomorrows

Friday, we lost a great human being, a magnificent soul. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg offered to us a brilliant intellect, impeccable integrity and held herself personally accountable for human progress in what matters in life: equality, equity, shared power, and justice for the dignity and well-being of all. She demonstrated leading as love in service to life in everything that she did.

She was not a “liberal." She was liberated from the institutional structures that conserve the status quo of wealth and power for the few at the expense of the many, which blocks human progress. This is her legacy for each and every one of us to continue: to take up the mantle of integrity and accountability for societal-economic-political justice for all.

“A profound and meaningful life means doing something outside of yourself.”

"Dissents speak to a future age. It is not simply to say, 'My colleagues are wrong, and I would do it this way.' But the greatest dissents do become court opinions and gradually over time their views become the dominant view. So that's the dissenter's hope: that they are writing not for today but for tomorrow.”

So said RBG.

Let us bring “tomorrow” to life today. Tell them Ruth sent you.
