(BOSTON, MA) – Statement of Emily Stewart, executive director of Community Catalyst, in response to the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“We are deeply saddened by the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She served our country valiantly by committing her life to justice and using her position to stand up for those who are excluded from our democracy. Her leadership on the high court has had a profound impact on people’s ability to control their own bodies and lives regardless of who they are, where they live, or how much money they make. Justice Ginsburg’s legacy will not be forgotten. We mourn this loss for our country, but as health advocates, we will carry her legacy forward in the fight for justice.”
