HIAS Mourns Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

“As we mourn the passing of Justice Ginsburg we celebrate her life and contributions,” said Melanie Nezer, HIAS Senior Vice President for Public Affairs. “The daughter and granddaughter of immigrants, Justice Ginsburg said her story was a ‘testament to our nation’s promise.’ When speaking to newly naturalized U.S. citizens, she encouraged them to help realize a more perfect union, since America’s real strength lies not in our rulers but our people. May Justice Ginsburg’s memory guide and inspire us in standing with people who seek safety, freedom, and a better life in America, as we work together to fulfill our nation’s highest ideals.”
