Remembering RBG

The world lost an incredible leader and advocate when Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away on September 18th. The legacy she leaves behind includes being the second woman to be appointed to the Supreme Court, and a series of staunch dissenting opinions that launched her into stardom among younger generations. It is simple to say that the world she leaves behind will miss her, but it goes much deeper than that. She leaves a hole in everyone’s lives she touched even those who had never met her. From being a role model to millions of young women to being a mother of two her presence will be impossible to replace. 

 

 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. You can find your representative’s contact information here.
