In this April 6, 2018, file photo, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg applauds after a performance in her honor after she spoke about her life and work during a discussion at Georgetown Law School in Washington. The Supreme Court says Ginsburg has died of metastatic pancreatic cancer at age 87.

A vigil and celebration of life for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will take place on the lawn of the Ontario County Courthouse, 27 N Main St, Canandaigua, on Sunday, Sept.20, 2020, at 6:30 p.m.

The public is invited.

The event will feature remarks by community members, a prayer/reflection, candle lighting and music. People are encouraged to park on Main Street or in the county parking lots behind the courthouse. Bring a chair or blanket to sit on.

Participants are expected to wear a face covering and stay six feet apart.

Justice Ginsburg was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1993 during the Clinton Administration. She was a feminist icon and pioneer, a scholar, teacher, attorney, and jurist. Her seminal work on gender discrimination cemented her legacy and led to greater equality for women in the workplace and society.
