Delegate Ayala’s Statement on the Passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

WOODBRIDGE, VA - Delegate Hala Ayala issued the following statement today on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:

“My deepest condolences to Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s family and friends as we mourn her loss together. Her commitment to equity and gender equality changed our country for the better. On the Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg was our firewall to protect civil rights, voting rights, and everything that we fight for. My life's work for women's equal justice, including championing the Equal Rights Amendment in the Virginia House of Delegates, was inspired by Justice Ginsburg’s work.  Her determined spirit gave me the motivation to fight everyday for what is right, knowing that we would make our Commonwealth and our country a better place. Tonight we mourn the loss of a giant, and tomorrow we must be determined to continue to fight and honor her legacy by getting out to the polls and voting.”
