Rest In Power, RBG

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is gone, but her legacy lives on — and her strength is inspiring women across this nation to continue her fight for justice and equality.


From Congresswoman Joyce Beatty:

“A champion for gender equality and justice, Justice Ginsburg’s legacy and decisions, not just on the Court, but her lifelong service to advancing equal rights for all people prior, will never be forgotten. As her colleagues said, ‘Today we mourn, but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her — a tireless and resolute champion of justice.'”


From Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur:

“Justice Ginsburg carved her lasting legend in the laws of the land as one of four women to have ever served on the Supreme Court. As a champion of gender equality and civil rights, she leaves behind a legacy that is rarely seen but once in a generation. Because of her service as a wise, gifted legal intellect and incisive justice, she lived to witness social progress across generations once thought unimaginable. She tirelessly fought for marginalized people every day of her life to include her dying breath. She is a national treasure and a blessing who will be remembered and celebrated for as long as this nation stands. My prayers are with her and her family.”


From Ohio House Democratic Leader Emilia Sykes:

“Justice Ginsburg has been an inspiration to me and to so many other women in the legal profession. She was a champion of equality and reproductive justice as she fought for ALL of us from the bench. She was a trailblazer, a real American hero, and we are a better country because she served on the High Court.”


Women Veterans Call Out Donald Trump

State Rep. Lisa Sobecki represents Ohio House District 45 in Lucas County, and she is also a Navy vet and military family member.

She recently wrote to the Toledo Blade:

“As a veteran with three tours overseas and more than five years in the U.S. Navy, I have been in tremendously difficult situations. For the last four years, my son has been serving in the U.S. Air Force at the 180th National Guard. My father, uncle, and several of my brothers-in-law and nephews have or are currently serving in the United States military.

“My family serves our country because we believe in America and that it’s worth fighting, even dying, for. That does not make us ‘suckers.’ My uncle was missing in action and later presumed dead. That does not make him a ‘loser.’

“I’m incredibly concerned about reports President Trump, our commander-in-chief, called veterans ‘suckers’ and ‘losers.'”


Melissa Rodriguez served in the U.S. Air Force for 24 years, including deployments in support of both Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. Here’s why she’s backing Joe Biden:

“We currently have a Commander in Chief that disrespects our fallen heroes, wounded warriors and those who choose to enlist to serve their country, while also deporting undocumented veterans that have served … Our services are a diverse group of men and women that come from all parts of the country with varying social-economic backgrounds, but they come together every day in service to their country through teamwork, duty, honor and service before self. And we deserve a leader that will do that same. And Joe Biden will be that kind of leader.”


Ohio Women Lead

Fresh polls from Public Policy Polling in several highly competitive Ohio House districts show Democratic women candidates leading or within striking distance.

“Even in gerrymandered districts they’ve drawn for themselves, Ohio Republicans can’t outrun the stink of their corruption with FirstEnergy and Larry Householder,” said ProgressOhio Managing Director Michael McGovern. “Ohio voters are sick of footing the bill for Republican corruption and are ready to clean house.”
