Ruth Bader Ginsburg:
March 15, 1933 – September 18, 2020
On Saturday night, a candlelight vigil was held in Granite Creek Park to honor the life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
People spoke about how her actions had personally affected them, recited poetry and in general, talked about her remarkable life and her 27 years as a justice on the Supreme Court.
I came away from the ceremony deeply touched not only by what RBG had done with her life but how she inspired others, like me, to be a better person. The effect of her life on others felt even more magnified by her death.
I think the legacy of this really remarkable woman is that we don’t have to do what RBG did but that we are so inspired by her that we work toward our own greatness in our own style that is authentically who we each are. I think RBG would like that.
In her honor, I challenge each one of us to call and email our senators to insist that they not vote on her replacement until after the election.
Mavis Brauer, Chair Indivisible Prescott
I saw the movie RGB A force of Nature surely was she She reminded me of my ideal mom A feisty little phenomenon Like Superwoman she fought for Truth A wiser woman from her youth With wicked wit, she was a charmer Nothing, it seemed, did disarm her I can say we will rue the day When this great one was taken away In her memory, we must fight on Until injustice is surely gone She towered above the tallest of men We hope to be blessed with one like her again She fought for fairness and equality So the truth of our liberty we might see Goodnight Ruth; Goodnight Moon Sleep in the slumber of your cocoon A life well lived is laid to rest Throwing off the chains of weariness In her memory, mankind will rise To see Law's truth before our eyes Blest and blessed are the same Basking within her eternal flame ...Linda Lutes
Save SCOTUS: Call, Email & Write Senators
Call your Senators now and demand they REFUSE to consider any Supreme Court Justice until the new president is inaugurated. The American people deserve to have their voice heard in what could shift the courts irreparably for our lifetimes.

If you have never called a Senator’s office and you do not know what to say, here is a quick guide:
There are 9 Senators listed to be called. These are the only ones you need to call. We need 4 to vote with Dems in order to prevent an appointment. You will be leaving a message. In fact, if phone calls make you nervous, call after hours or on the weekend. You only need to leave a message….not have a policy discussion.
You could say: (Make the message your own!)
My name is……. I am calling because there is now a vacancy on the Supreme Court due to the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Senator McConnell set the precedent in 2016. Now the Senate should follow it.
No vote on a Supreme Court nominee just before or after an election until the President is seated on January 20, 2021.
