In honor of Ruth Bader Ginsberg, our friends at Magnolia Pictures have re-released the award-winning documentary, RBG, and the Triplex will be participating in the virtual screening of the film. Magnolia will be donating all of the proceeds to the ACLU Women’s Rights Project, which was co-founded by Justice Ginsburg in 1972.
