Continuing RBG's Legacy

The Idaho Women Lawyers partners with community organizations to promote access to justice and protecting rights of others. In 2022, IWL hosted a fundraiser, honoring Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, to support the new education center for the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights. This comprehensive human rights education center will feature a tribute wall honoring Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Displayed on this wall will be a sculpture by Boise artist Benjamin Victor titled “Transcendent Justice”. The reception featured remarks from the artist about his process and inspiration, information about the Wassmuth Center’s mission, community-building activities, a silent auction, and an opportunity to reflect on Justice Ginsburg’s legacy.
