“Justice Ginsburg was one of the greatest champions of equal opportunity to serve on the Supreme Court [during its] recent history. Her dissent in Shelby v. Holder — pointing out that “throwing out preclearance when it has worked and is continuing to work to stop discriminatory changes is like throwing away your umbrella in a rainstorm because you are not getting wet” — was eerily prescient. Her commitment to defending the rights of marginalized Americans was never in doubt. Her intelligence, her expertise, and her passion will be sorely missed. The National Urban League joins the nation in mourning this monumental loss.”
