Justice Ginsburg spent her life fighting for all people’s equality. She was the architect of the legal fight to establish protections against gender discrimination and an ardent supporter of voting rights, immigration, and affirmative action. From her groundbreaking work on gender discrimination to her opinions and dissents as a Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg used her powerful intellect to advance equality.
Justice Ginsburg’s fierce advocacy for immigrants, freedom, and justice was a message of empowerment and acceptance for many immigrant communities.
To quote one impactful statement by Justice Ginsburg:
“We are a nation made strong by people like you: people who traveled long distances overcame great obstacles and made tremendous sacrifices, all to provide a better life for themselves and their families.”
These statements of encouragement have laid the foundation for the American Dream. Justice Ginsburg’s voice has allowed the Bosniak American community to realize this dream of opportunity, inclusion, and success. Her leadership serves as an inspiration for future generations of Bosniak Americans, especially young women who grasp opportunities and aspire for great success.
As she served our Court and Country with consummate dedication, tirelessness, and passion for justice, Justice Ginsburg stressed the importance of inclusion;
“Fight for the things that you care about but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.”
The Congress of North American Bosniaks takes these words to heart. We remain committed to contribute and enrich Bosniaks’ active role in the U.S. and Canada through educational, economic, social, political, and cultural empowerment. As we look toward the future, we will celebrate her memory and trailblazing commitment to justice, equality, and her collective struggle for dignity, freedom, and democracy. All Americans owe Justice Ginsburg a debt of gratitude for her passionate pursuit of justice, unconditional reverence to the Constitution, and service to our country.
