Colorado Dems Statement on the Passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Denver, CO – The Colorado Democratic Party released the following statement on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She was 87 years old.
Chair of the Colorado Democratic Party Morgan Carroll:
“I cannot begin to express how important and impactful Ruth Bader Ginsburg was to the empowerment of women in the workplace. As a graduate of CU Law and an attorney, I’ve always looked to Ginsburg as a source of inspiration. The ‘Notorious R.B.G.’, as so many called her, shattered the glass ceiling at a point in time when few women attended law school, and it was thanks to her fierce determination that women were guaranteed equal protection under the law via the 14th Amendment.
“Under her tenure as Justice, Ginsburg moved the ball forward for equal opportunity and protected the civil rights of the marginalized on so many decisions. From reproductive health, to marriage equality, to voting rights, to disability rights, Ginsburg’s impact on the course of our nation’s history will be felt for years to come. My heart is broken for her family and loved ones, and we grieve with them as our country mourns the loss of an icon, a titan, and one of the greatest legal minds our country will ever see.”
