peace, justice, freedom and dignity


“Fight for the things you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.” Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Our nation has lost a champion of equality.
Justice Ginsburg was a pioneer, an icon, a fighter, and an advocate for the rights of all Americans.
As we move forward in the weeks and months ahead, we are charged to continue to get up and do the work as she inspired us to do.


“A democracy cannot thrive where power remains unchecked and justice is reserved for a select few. Ignoring these cries and failing to respond to this movement is simply not an option — for peace cannot exist where justice is not served.”— Lewis on the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act

Inspiration without action is daydreaming.
