Mourning the Loss of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a Pioneer for Women and Powerful Champion for Justice
The passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a deep, painful, immense loss for the nation. Her contributions were greater than words can express and her legacy is a country that is more fair, more just, and more healthy for women, people of color, and others whose rights have long been denied. Justice Ginsburg was a trailblazer, a pioneer, a mom, and a brilliant jurist whose body of work will live on and inspire us forever. She was rightly adored for her keen, unwavering commitment to justice. We take very seriously our responsibility to advance her vision of a country where we can all live with dignity, count on equal opportunity, and have control over our reproductive health and lives.
Today, with immeasurable sadness, America’s moms mourn this tremendous loss -- and tomorrow we will honor Justice Ginsburg by mobilizing and organizing to protect the U.S. Supreme Court from the kind of anti-civil rights, anti-women, anti-abortion, anti-immigrant jurist that Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell will try to appoint. Her memory will inspire us to continue the fight for justice and for the kind of nation Ruth Bader Ginsburg devoted her life to creating.
