Perhaps one of the most well-known crusaders for women’s rights, Ruth Bader Ginsburg advanced gender-equality, the rights of workers, and separation of church and state. She rejected violence as counterproductive and stressed the need to restore respect, establish justice, and reduce the causes of conflict as the surest way to peace. Following her lead, for generations, women have resolved conflicts in their homes, schools, workplaces, and communities. They have expanded the American tradition of using inclusive, democratic, and active means to reduce violence, achieve peace, and promote the common good.
Each March, at the Women’s Day Training Conference, Region 3 of the New York State Minorities in Criminal Justice, Inc. honors a woman who’s work supports these ideas by awarding her the RBG (Ruth Bader Ginsburg) Agent of Change Award.
Nomination submissions are accepted from November 1st through February 14th.
“Fight for the things you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.” – Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg
