LGBTQ Community Mourns RBG Passing

By Charlotte Robinson, September 19, 2020

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a champion & consistent voice for fairness for women, for LGBTQ Americans, for people living with HIV & for correcting racial injustices. Rea Carey Executive Director National LGBTQ Task Force stated, "Today we have lost a giant of justice, a champion for equality & progress. Justice Ginsburg was an American hero & pioneer, a voice for so many marginalized people, leaving behind a legacy of courage, tenacity & historic impact in creating a better country & a better world for all of us. We are all so grateful for all Justice Ginsburg has done for LGBTQ people, for women, for our ability to control our own bodies, for all that seek to move freedom forward in this country." Imani Rupert-Gordon, Executive Director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights added, “Justice Ginsburg was a warrior for freedom & justice & we were honored to fight alongside her. That struggle is more important than ever. We will celebrate her life & grieve her loss. But above all, we will honor her legacy by continuing her fight.” Kevin Jennings Lambda Legal CEO concluded, “Throughout her entire legal career, including her 27 years on the Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg fought for the rights of those on the margins. From her time as a lawyer with the ACLU Women’s Rights Project to her years on the Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg spoke with a clear & strong voice against inequality & gender discrimination. A long-standing ally of the LGBTQ community, her unwavering support, both on & off the bench, was a testament to her commitment to equality for all people.” U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Rest In Peace we will continue your work.
