Alliance for Justice Mourns the Passing of Associate Justice Ginsburg
WASHINGTON, DC, September 18, 2020 – Alliance for Justice President Nan Aron issued the following statement on the passing of Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:
“Alongside our entire staff, board, and country, I deeply mourn the passing of Associate Justice Ginsburg. As a staunch advocate for equal rights for all, Justice Ginsburg worked tirelessly — throughout her entire career — to make the U.S. live up to its ideals.
Justice Ginsburg was a trailblazer — the second woman to serve on the Supreme Court, the first Jewish woman, and a voice for all Americans not just the wealthy and powerful. Justice Ginsburg blazed trails on her way to greatness, authoring and joining opinions that advanced women’s equality, LGBTQ+ rights, reproductive freedoms, and so many other protections so many hold dear.”
