Washington, D.C. – In response to the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, earlier today, Greisa Martinez Rosas, Executive Director of United We Dream, said:
“We lost a powerful ally in the fight for justice today. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a fierce trailblazer in the fight for women’s equality and a champion for justice. I join freedom fighters everywhere in mourning her passing.
During her 27 years on the Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg helped advance the rights of marginalized people. Women, LGBTQ people, immigrants, and many others. This summer, she saw through a malicious attack on immigrant young people, casting a vote to protect DACA recipients and their families from deportation.
Thank you Justice Ginsburg for inspiring countless young women and girls with your tenacity and resilience. You will be missed, but your impact and legacy will be far reaching. We will continue to honor your legacy with our work. ¡La lucha sigue! The fight continues! Rest in power, Justice Ginsburg.”

UWD’s vision is to build a multi-racial, multi-ethnic movement of young people who organize and advocate at the local and national levels for the dignity and justice of immigrants and communities of color in the United States.
