I Will Fight for Fair Maps Because I'm Against Prison Gerrymandering | League of Women Voters

Happy Justice Ginsburg Day!

This is the first time this day celebrates the legacy of the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She was a relentless defender of voters and the rights of all people to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Justice Ginsburg Day was created by RBG's hometown of Brooklyn, NY and takes place on her birthday. Justice Ginsburg would have turned 88 today. May she rest in peace and power.
