Capital Pride mourns the passing of Associate Justice of the United States Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She was a towering champion for civil rights and a steadfast defender of the proposition that prejudice should have no place in American life, demanding instead that all must be treated equally. From her early, groundbreaking work regarding gender discrimination through her forty years as a jurist, Justice Ginsburg applied her considerable skills and intellect to effectively persuade others to rethink and abandon outmoded stereotypes. She was part of every Supreme Court decision advancing LGBTQ+ rights over the past three decades. We are grateful for her impact on our lives and our country and appreciate the resolve and determination she brought to the task of moving our nation toward the ideal of “a more perfect Union.” We can best honor her by insuring that the ideals for which she stood are nurtured and strengthened and not merely abandoned to the winds of political expediency.
