Activists remember Ruth Ginsberg at Supreme Court

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Sep 18, and was remembered that night by progressive activists outside the Supreme Court. The stakes just went WAY up for the 2020 election.

The next Supreme Court justice will be picked by the NEXT president, and may or may not be confirmed.
