From the chair of the Washington State Democrats:
“We lost a legend tonight. Justice Ginsburg will go down in American history as one of the fiercest advocates for civil rights and equality under the law that we’ve ever been blessed to serve us in public life. Tonight, we send our love and our sympathy to Justice Ginsburg’s family, and we grieve with them as we mourn her loss.””But tomorrow, the work of fighting to protect the rights Justice Ginsburg enshrined in decisions issued from the highest court in the land must continue. The security of so many Americans’ reproductive rights, right to marry whomever they love, and the fundamental right to be treated as equals in our society should never have rested on the shoulders of a five foot tall, 87 year old giant of American jurisprudence. We must recommit ourselves to ensuring America lives up to the vision of a just society Justice Ginsburg brought to life in both the decisions she authored and the example she set for women everywhere. May she rest in peace.”
