As a supreme court justice, RBG participated in numerous land-mark cases including arguably her most influential, Obergefell v. Hodges, 2015. The case that legalized same-sex marriage. Her dissenting opinion is thought to have swayed public opinion.
“... Would that be a choice that states should [still] be allowed to have? To cling to marriage the way it once was?”
Though we still mourn the passing away of RBG, the world of politics has continued to move with her death leaving an empty seat on the supreme court. The Trump administration has already selected a replacement with Judge Amy Coney Barrett set to begin the appointment process. This will blatantly ignore the American people’s opinion ahead of the November general election just weeks away. Grow Together recommends you call and/or email your representative to let them know that you support pushing the appointment to after the presidential election.
