September 18, 2020

(Washington, DC) – U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) issued the following statement on the passing of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:

“It’s with tremendous sadness that I learned of the passing of Justice Ginsburg,” said Shaheen. “America has lost its greatest champion of women’s rights in a generation. Her legacy will live on through the many freedoms that women enjoy throughout our society. She will forever be known for her profound strength, unparalleled intellect and uncompromising values. Throughout her time on the Court, she fought tirelessly for equality for all races, creeds and gender identities. America is a better nation because of her service. My thoughts and prayers are with the Ginsburg family.”
