The Baltimore Regional Housing Partnership joins the nation in mourning the loss of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a pioneer, legal icon, and fervent leader who dedicated her life to fighting for and upholding the rights of all Americans.

In the face of insurmountable odds throughout her life, Justice Ginsburg overcame and persevered each step of the way as an advocate for justice and equality. Long before being appointed and serving nearly 30 years on the Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg successfully and notoriously argued cases that expanded protections for women nationwide as the founder and general counsel of the ACLU’s Women’s Rights Project and professor at Columbia Law School.

As only the second woman to serve on the Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg became a steadfast voice in support of rights for marginalized groups, including gender equality, racial equality, marriage equality, disability rights, immigrant rights, and more.

Our country is better, because of Justice Ginsburg’s lifetime of public service and we at BRHP are inspired to continue her legacy of building stronger, freer and inclusive communities for all.

We send our deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of Justice Ginsburg.
