We join with the entire country in expressing our sorrow at the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
From the teen years on, Justice Ginsburg’s entire life was spent in striving for excellence, justice and respect for the law. She was an incredibly tireless worker for the rights of women and the underserved, as well as a shining example of the highest standards of education, jurisprudence and even family life. Her assiduous work to secure equal protection for women, especially, and others missing from inclusive shelter under the law forever changed the way the American legal system looks at its own functioning, She serves as a role model for girls and young women now and well into the future..
She embodied the qualities and standards our organization seeks to encourage in our Youth Development Programs, and is an inspiration to us all as we work to promote opportunities and advancement for women of all ages.
Our heartfelt thanks to Justice Ginsburg for her unparalleled legacy. May she rest in peace.
