RBG Poem on PBS

by rosemerryt@gmail.com

On September 23, 2020, PBS News Hour ran my poem, “In the Steps of RBG” as part of the celebration of the Supreme Court Justice’s life and legacy. I am so grateful for all the work she did, for all the ways she helped create equality, and for all the ways she inspired us to create social change “one step at a time.” Even more so, I am grateful for her example of integrity, kindness, and willingness to be a bridge builder–she never stooped to name calling or nastiness. She treated everyone with respect. As my friend Blake Spalding says, time for all of us to channel our inner RBG.
