WASHINGTON – Statement from Shaunna Thomas, co-founder and executive director of UltraViolet, a leading national women’s group:
“Ruth Bader Ginsburg was an icon, a pioneer, a hero and a legend. We as a nation owe her a debt that can’t fully be repaid. LGBTQ Rights, reproductive rights, gender equity, racial justice—she was a giant in advancing our freedoms and she helped transform our society for the better.”
“Her spirit must inspire us in these hard days ahead as we honor her incredible life and protect her legacy.”

“RBG did her part, fighting for our rights until the very end. Now, it’s on us to continue the work to protect our rights, lives, health, and freedoms. We honor RBG by digging into the good trouble and fight she devoted her life to and ensuring that her last wishes are honored.”
“We demand that the Senate not move to replace her until a new president is sworn in.”
“We must uphold the work she committed herself to until the end by protecting it and expanding it. And we must commit our all to the critical work of the next 45 days to ensure that a new administration is in the White House come January to fulfill her dying wish.”
