|A century after the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment, Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s pioneering career as a scholar, advocate, and judge stands as a monument to the power of dissent. |

|The Yavapai County Democratic Party mourns the death of the beloved Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who succumbed to pancreatic cancer last night at age 87 after a long, arduous battle. She was a legendary legal figure and icon of the women’s rights movement. Only 5 feet tall, RBG, as she was fondly dubbed, stood as a towering figure in American jurisprudence and as an inspiring role model for her record as a talented lawyer, distinguished scholar and respected groundbreaking judge. The tragedy of the loss of RBG at this critical inflection point in American history cannot be overstated. We must grieve, but then we must remember her passion and indomitable spirit in guiding us to continue her fight for justice and fairness. We must use her example to give us the strength to work harder to elect candidates who reflect her values. In this 2020 election season, join us in the battle to uphold all that RBG stood for: the ideals of democracy and equality.|
|Out of honor and respect,|
we mourn the loss of this great equal rights icon.
But she would not want us to dally too long in our grief.
The battle ahead will be fierce.
You can help carry on Justice Ginsburg’s work by fighting
for equality for all Americans.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg dictated this statement to her granddaughter Clara Spera:
“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”
|Call your Senators and demand they not vote on her replacement until after the election.|
