It's time to fight like hell for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme and cruel agenda, where the Big Lie is called a Big Lie, where facts matter, and where accountability at the polls and in the press has a fighting chance. We have our work cut out for us, and we urgently need to raise about 400,000 by Thursday, June 30, to finish our fiscal year on track and give it everything we possibly can. Please help us get there with a donation if you can right now.
Right now is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme and cruel agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability at the polls and in the press has a fighting chance. We have our work cut out for us, and we still need to raise upwards of 400,000 by June 30 to give it everything we can. Please help:

Trailblazing Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died at 87. The liberal feminist icon made history by becoming the second woman to ever serve on the Supreme Court, to which she was nominated by President Bill Clinton in 1993. Before that, President Jimmy Carter nominated her to a 13-year tenure on the D.C. Circuit in 1980. Throughout her career, she burnished her credentials as a fierce advocate for women’s rights, a reputation she developed while working for the ACLU on landmark gender discrimination cases. This legacy was cemented later, in the Twitter Age, as a symbol of judicial resistance, under the moniker gifted to her by legions of fans, world-wide, for her strident dissents: the Notorious RBG.
Here’s a pictorial look back at some of the defining moments from Bader Ginsburg’s barrier-breaking career.
