Congressman Carson Statement on the Passing of Justice Ginsburg
Washington, DC -- Congressman André Carson released the following statement on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
"The passing of Justice Ginsburg is a monumental loss for our entire nation. She was a tireless champion for civil rights and equality for all --- not only during her 27 years sitting on the Supreme Court, but throughout her long and distinguished legal career. She experienced the sting of discrimination and bigotry, and spent her life working to prevent future generations from experiencing the same prejudice she rose up against. I urge every American to put partisan differences and political allegiances aside right now and come together to honor her amazing life and legacy, and to allow us time to mourn her enormous loss. We must lift up her life's work to ensure that America's freedoms and opportunities are available to all."
