How do you mourn the loss of a great champion for justice like Ruth Bader Ginsburg? You mourn deeply & you vow to continue her work with even greater resolve. Her death must bring us to life.
No one who loved her work on voting rights, women’s rights, or corporate responsibility can stay home & not vote. We must renew our resolve to fight as she fought.
After the Supreme Court said in 1852 that a Black man has no rights a white man must respect, Frederick Douglass declared that, as monstrous as the decision was, the movement has to remember that “all measures devised and executed with a view to ally & diminish the anti-slavery agitation, have only served to increase, intensify, and embolden that agitation.”
This might be the death that brings alive the full vote of this democracy, which could not only change the presidency but also the Senate. This might bring waffling undecided voters off of the sidelines.
If McConnell over reaches, I’m believing the people will over perform, and we could see an election like never before. RBG often quoted Justice Brandeis: “The greatest menace to freedom is an inert people.” May she Rest In Peace. We must rise with power! -Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II ...
Thanks for a hopeful message when this news made me feel hopeless for our democracy. We must put forth light and fight for it!!!
* We have lost some key / beloved leaders in 2020 and the fight for positive change; I personally request an updated public briefing soon with guidance on what we can do as the foot soldiers of the #PoorPeoplesCampaign, what we should do next and in the coming month to ensure their sacrifices were not in vain. - Howard Mclymont
Women owe so much to RBG. She fought so hard for women's rights and equality. She tried hard to serve right up to her death. A heroine in America. Rest in Peace and thank you.
Today we mourn and honor this amazing woman and defender of human rights. Tomorrow we VOTE and then we fight as she fought for us.
I feel bad because I didn't even know who she was... I personal had never heard of or seen her before. 🥺🥺🥺🥺
Is it clear that we are running out of time? Lets not count on who this 'might' bring out to vote. Lets go get those votes! Lets not put stock in 'believing' people will overperform, lets go out and work to convince them! Lets not mourn RBG today, lets honor her last wish by calling every possible republican senator who could impede this confirmation process before the election. Contact Vote2020 and your State democratic party online for events you can participate in now, meaningful actions you can take. Be smart, strategic and focused like a laser every day people! No more preaching to the choir. No generic," lets fight", "lets carry the baton", no flowery words. Get specific about ideas and plans! Exchange real information. Everyone on this thread is pretty much like minded. Sharing thoughts and feelings in this way may feel personally satisfying but it ISNT GETTING THE WORK DONE. Please! Inform and invite, do the work. Please! I beg you. Lets use this time productively. There is very little remaining.
You honor her memory and take action, stand for something and like Rep. John Lewis said “get into good trouble”
“Baruch dayan ha'emet,” “Blessed is the true judge.”
We must fight for that! We owe her!
Rest in blessed peace, Judge Ginsburg. We must flip the Senate and add positions to the Supreme Court for balance.
Hypocrisy pervades all peoples everywhere, but in the US the GOP is synonymous with that word.
You get out and VOTE!
We MUST fight and carry on her light!!!!!
Here in Australia I was talking with a friend about Judge Ginsberg and how it seemed she was fighting death and to the death to protect that court.
Thank you RGB for your service RIP Condolences to the family
A great loss for our country and the supreme court
Thank you for your thoughts Dr. Barber.
So beautifully said Reverend.
Your works shall follow you whether good or bad. We have no power over death and it is the game changer. We forget that man has but a short time to live and thereafter judgement.
Ase to Rev William Barber's comments BIDEN-HARRIS 2020 to ensure RGB Life and Supreme Court stances, views, and voting will continue for the betterment of our Democracy. We need to go forward, not backward. BIDEN-HARRIS 2020! Vote Early and encourage other to do.
She's passed her enormous earthly mission to all of us. We rise to the challenge. Rest in peace, RBG.
We lost a Great human being and we owe it to her memory to get the vote out. Vote for Biden and the Democratic Party.
Stump v. Sparkman is another outrageous decision by SCOTUS. Why is that still binding precedent?
Let’s over perform people!
A total hero. You fought all your life for justice. May you rest in peace.
The Kentucky Poor People's Campaign is organizing caravans to each of Mitch McConnell's offices in Kentucky and in Washington DC to demand an end to his Meanness, Misery and Mayhem. Instead of passing a full and comprehensive relief package, Senate Majority Leader McConnell has engaged in the sins of:
Suppressing the Vote, Sabotaging the USPS, Stopping the Stimulus, Stealing Healthcare, Stifling Living Wages and Separating Families
Join a caravan or join us online where we'll get live reports from each location on Monday, September 21 at 3:30pm ET / 2:30 pm CT*
Go to bit.ly/ppccaravans to register for Monday. If you're in Kentucky or the Washington DC area, you can sign up for the caravan in person.
And everyone can join us online Monday, Sept. 21, 3:30pm ET at fb.com/anewppc and poorpeoplescampaign.org/livestream, where we'll have live reports from each location and continue a massive call-in to McConnell's offices. ...
Add now to this list the disregard for the dying wishes of American Legend Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
This man is a leader, for hypocrisy and hate!

Did I post here a few days ago about my hunger strike for racial/ immigrant/child justice? If I did, my apologies, but I'm going to post again. The county of Cowlitz, in WA state, is jailing child immigrants and making a profit off this racism. They get $ from the feds to house kids for ICE. They do not have to spend all that $ on the child. The contract has been in place almost 10 years and allows indefinite, unrepresented, incarceration of non-citizen kids. The contract is so vague as to who is a "listed offender" that a runaway from an abusive home, or who threatened suicide can be locked away and forgotten until deported. Requests and demands to end the contract fall on the deaf ears of our greedy county commissioners. Our protests in front of the juvenile detention facility counter-protested by white supremacists. So I conceived the idea to put my life on the line in protest with a hunger strike. I'm a veteran. 64. Not a big gal. This may kill me. If you want to help you may do so by contacting the county commissioners: Arne Mortensen. firstname.lastname@example.org. 207 4th Ave. N. Kelso, WA. 98626 (360)577.3020 p.
