May Her Memory Be A Revolution: The Life & Legacy of RBG

This three-part series, organized by the J, the Program in Jewish Studies at Rice University, the Center for the Study of Women, Gender & Sexuality at Rice University, and the University of Houston Jewish Studies Program, will bring together scholars, activists, public servants, and attorneys to discuss Justice Ginsburg’s impact on American society.
