portrait of a woman

Sept. 18, 2020 -- “We pause tonight to remember and honor the life and legacy of one of America’s greatest jurists, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Justice Ginsburg was a native New Yorker who found her passion in fighting for the civil rights of all by focusing on gender equality, forcing America to reckon with injustices on the basis of sex. She committed the final decades of her life to make America better and gave all of us something to strive for. Personally, and from this Office, we send our heartfelt condolences to the Ginsburg family, as well as her many colleagues. To say Justice Ginsburg will be missed is not enough. Instead, we thank her for all that she gave us, especially those of us on the Bench and before the Bar. Her words and opinions will carry us through the generations.”
