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

How do we remember Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg? Did her Judaism shape her understanding of law, and where was her presence felt beyond her career as a Supreme Court Justice? 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.
