This is pretty great!
Thousands of people gathered outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, DC, for the second night of tributes to honor late justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG), who died Friday at age 87.
Flowers, candles, and words were left in tribute for the late justice.
“She fought for equality for men, for women, people of color, for gay rights … just a lot, a lot that me as young as I am, don’t know about, because, I haven’t lived as long,” said a man among the crowd.
A statue of the late justice will be built in her native Brooklyn, New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Saturday.
Ginsburg died Friday of complications from metastatic pancreatic cancer at age 87. A legal trailblazer and champion of women’s rights, she became the high court’s second female justice in 1993.
In a statement, Cuomo said the statue will serve as a physical reminder of Ginsburg’s “many contributions to the America we know today and as an inspiration for those who will continue to build on her immense body of work.”
Ginsburg was born in Brooklyn in 1933 and grew up in the borough’s Flatbush neighborhood. She first gained fame as a litigator for the Women’s Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union.
