Remembering Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Before she became a cultural icon, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a reproductive rights and gender-equality hero. She fought against gender discrimination in schools, workplaces, the military and civil service, and unapologetically defended the right to safe, legal abortion. Even when she was not in the majority, her powerful dissents set the stage for advancing civil rights. Her death last month was a loss for the court and the country.
While we're still mourning Ginsburg, the Senate has wasted no time pushing through her replacement. Amy Coney Barrett has consistently ruled against abortion rights and opposed every progressive cause that has come before her. Her confirmation would be not only a blow to Justice Ginsburg's legacy, but a trigger for staggering rollbacks of civil rights, healthcare, LGBTQIA+ rights and the health of our planet.
Here's one thing you can do: Take action to demand your senators vote no on Barrett.
