Passing of Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg Means US’ Vote Becomes Ever More Important
AAJC Says US People Need Voice in Next Appointment
Ex-Supreme Court Justice
Late Ruth Bader Ginsburg
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is sending shockwaves across America. As the nation mourns, a new battle on Capitol Hill looms, as many expect some in Congress to exploit this national loss for partisan gain.

John C. Yang, president and executive director of Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAJC) releases the following statement in response:

“Tonight, Advancing Justice - AAJC mourns the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She was a pioneering champion for gender equality and a tireless protector of civil and human rights for all people in this country. Her voice will be sorely missed.

As a civil rights organization, Advancing Justice - AAJC honors Justice Ginsburg, as a guiding light on cases of utmost importance to the work we do and the equity we seek, not only for Asian Americans but for all Americans. From dissenting opinions in Shelby v. Holder and Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. to landmark opinions in Evenwel v. Abbott that affirmed one person, one vote and United States v. Virginia which allowed women to attend the Virginia Military Institute, Justice Ginsburg was an unrelenting, fierce defender of justice.

Given that people are already voting, and Election Day is less than 45 days away, ‘we the people’ should choose the president who will choose Justice Ginsburg’s replacement. Anything else is undemocratic. This election already was critically important in determining the future of our country. Tonight, it became even more important.

But tonight is about remembering a remarkable legal career and a chance to walk in the shadow of greatness and to uphold the code of fairness and equity with which Ruth Bader Ginsburg lived her life. Advancing Justice – AAJC will honor the legacy of Justice Ginsburg through our work.”

Asian Americans Advancing Justice – AAJC has a mission to advance the civil and human rights of Asian Americans and to build and promote a fair and equitable society for all. Visit our website at
