(SARTOGA SPRINGS, NEW YORK - September 19, 2020) Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing brings sorrow and awe as we mourn and celebrate the insurmountable loss of a woman who championed for civil and women’s rights and liberties. She is an inspiration who bravely and gracefully fought her own battles for gender equality.

SUNY Empire State College embodies these qualities of strength and perseverance, and will remain steadfast in our effort to promote social justice. We will continue to strive toward addressing the persistent present-day societal inequities.
