LACDP Chair Mark J Gonzalez's statement on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg


LOS ANGELES, CA  -- In response to the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair Mark J Gonzalez released the following statement:

“Today America and Angelenos mourn the loss of the lioness of our US Supreme Court. A true American hero, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was only the second female and the first Jewish female appointed to our Supreme Court who became a trailblazer and a voice for the rights of Americans all across the country. As an advocate for gender equality, women’s rights, international law, and so much more, Justice Ginsburg reminded us how important a practical, principled, and forward-thinking interpretation of the law and working with colleagues from with a different ideology should be applied to decisions. Justice Ginsburg was a champion, and, yes, notorious. I  stand with all Angelenos across Los Angeles County and Americans across our nation in sending our thoughts to Justice Ginsburg’s family.”
