The late U.S. Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s words, “I Dissent” have become part of mainstream pop-culture, imprinted on totebags and t-shirts. However, the imprint she left on the fabric of our society matters far more. Her dissenting opinions were often of greater importance than if her voice had been part of the majority. “The dissenter’s hope: that they are writing not for today but for tomorrow,” she said. In this monthly series, you’ll learn about the Supreme Court cases that led to Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s most influential dissents, through discussions with legal experts and social justice advocates.

In the final installment in this series, join the Honorable Michelle D. Earley, Administrative and Presiding Judge of the Cleveland Municipal Court, and Carole S. Rendon, the first woman to serve as the United States. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, for an energetic discussion regarding affirmative action, centering on the decision and dissent in the case of Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action.
