It is with deep sadness that the Democracy Initiative received news last night of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's passing. Justice Ginsberg was powerful defender of the values we fight to realize in our democracy every day: justice for the most marginalized, and equal opportunity and dignity for all. Hers is a tremendous loss. Tonight, a vigil sponsored by DI partners and allies Center for Popular Democracy, People for the American Way, and others will be held to commemorate the life and work of Justice Ginsberg outside the United States Supreme Court at 8:00pm EST; we encourage you to join us.

We will continue to update this page and our partner statements in the coming days. have attached below our statement and those of our anchor partners and allies.
