Warren vigil to honor Ruth Bader Ginsburg

WARREN — A candelight vigil in memory of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be 7:30 p.m. today on Warren’s Courthouse Square.

Ginsburg died Friday of pancreatic cancer at the age of 87 and was the second female justice on the court. She was appointed in 1993.

The vigil is being organized by Mary Benjamin, a member of the Trumbull County Young Democrats and Mahoning / Trumbull Democratic Women’s Caucus. She said there will be speakers, a Jewish prayer and discussion about Ginsburg’s impact on the court and community.

Participants are asked to maintain social distancing and wear a mask. Participants can bring their own candles or they can use their phone or a lighter during the vigil.

Benjamin said people can bring flowers if they wish, but placing stones at a memorial is more in line with Jewish tradition.
