AFSCME mourns the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

AFSCME President Lee Saunders issued the following statement on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:

“America has lost one of its peerless giants in Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg – someone who shattered glass ceilings and flung open doors of opportunity, a fierce warrior for justice who believed the law should be on the side of the people, not just the powerful. Her heroic leadership in the struggle for gender equality inspired millions of Americans and changed millions of lives. The legacy she leaves on the Supreme Court and the mark she made on the nation are beyond compare. On behalf of all AFSCME members, I extend my deepest condolences to her family.”
