Who Is Ruth Bader Ginsburg? 

from Biography.com

Born on March 15, 1933, in Brooklyn, New York, Ruth Bader Ginsburg graduated from Columbia Law School, going on to become a staunch courtroom advocate for the fair treatment of women and working with the ACLU’s Women’s Rights Project. She was appointed by President Carter to the U.S. Court of Appeals in 1980 and was appointed to the Supreme Court by President Clinton in 1993.

Later in the month, Ginsburg appeared at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival to accompany the premiere of the documentary RBG. Touching on the #MeToo movement, she recalled an earlier time when she had to put up with the advances of a Cornell University professor.

In an interview with CNN's Poppy Harlow at Columbia University in February. Ginsburg expanded on her thoughts regarding the #MeToo movement, saying its "staying power" would enable it to survive a backlash. She also defended the importance of a free press and an independent judiciary, both of which had been challenged during the Trump administration.

In April 2018, Ginsburg notched another career milestone by assigning a majority opinion for the first time in her 25 years with the court. The ruling for Sessions v. Dimaya, which drew attention for conservative Neil Gorsuch's decision to vote with his liberal colleagues, struck down a provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act that allowed the deportation of any foreign national convicted of a "crime of violence." Holding seniority among the majority, Ginsburg ultimately assigned the task of penning the opinion to Elena Kagan

I really would like to learn more about this powerful woman and will definitely buy the book Notorious RGB.

I will be offering new Expressive art Workshops with Hispanic Family Counseling.  3 workshops will be provided: Orlando - May 25, Kissimmee - June 1st and Altamonte - June 8th and I can't wait for you to attend. 

About my Workshops:

The process of intuitive painting and creating art is a beautiful playground in which to learn a ton of life’s lessons around healing, courage, imperfections, change, and so much more.  Trust your voice while we begin to bring our paintings together by following (and trusting) our creative urges. 
Expressive arts bridge the gap between the conscious and the unconscious mind. It can bring light to areas of therapy that are blocked, inhibited, and stuck, as well as bringing greater focus to those areas of concern. The primary focus is on the process, which allows a person to discover new insight and meaning that might not be achieved with traditional talk therapy.

Appropriate for all ages, it can enhance a person’s emotional, spiritual, cognitive, and physical well-being. While no previous experience expressive arts is required, several modalities available within expressive arts therapy magnify and deepen the process.

The Workshop...
• All are welcome. My workshops can be tailored to all ages and ability. 
• Absolutely no artistic experience is necessary to participate in my workshops. In fact, if you;re reading this and thinking, I am not creative enough to do this, then these workshops are perfect for you! Each of us has a creative, prolific artist within us and these workshops will help you to
dream big and set that amazing part of you free. 
• My workshops are a safe place where your art and creativity are sacred. I am not a therapist. I never analyze your artwork. The beauty of expressive arts is that you have the freedom to go as deep as you wish and share as much or as little as you are comfortable with. The artwork you create is for you and only you. 
• No pressure! It is about the process of art-making, rather than the results.

Hope you can make it!!!!
