New York, NY, September 21, 2020 ... ADL (the Anti-Defamation League) mourns the loss of trailblazing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the second woman to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, and the architect of the legal strategy that toppled some of the most egregious forms of sex discrimination. Justice Ginsburg, a lifelong champion of civil rights and liberties as both a legal practitioner and jurist, was a national and cultural icon whose brilliance, passion and strength was an inspiration to all.
Jonathan A. Greenblatt, ADL CEO, issued the following statement:
We deeply mourn the loss of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a trailblazer and judicial giant whose brilliance, passion and strength were an inspiration to all.
Justice Ginsburg dedicated her life to advocating for a more equitable and just world. She was a true champion of civil rights, women’s rights and equal rights for all, and her legacy will endure for generations to come. May her memory always be for a blessing.
