PHILADELPHIA — “The news of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing has dealt a crushing emotional blow to those of us who practice law with the goal of advancing equal rights for every citizen,” Keir Bradford-Grey, chief defender, the Defender Association of Philadelphia, said in a statement.
“‘RBG’ is an icon in so many ways — a hero whose work impacted the lives of millions of people; a pioneer for women in the legal profession; a shining example of moral and professional integrity; and an illustration of strength, longevity, and courage in difficult times.
Justice Ginsberg’s amazing legacy is secure. It’s now up to all of us to carry it forward by practicing, in our work and personal lives, what we’ve learned from her incredible career and contributions to our nation’s democracy.”
