Mayo Clinic to light buildings in honor of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Several Mayo Clinic locations across the country will light buildings in memory of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at dusk on Friday, Sept. 25.
In her honor, Mayo Clinic will light the Plummer Building in Rochester, Minnesota; Mayo Clinic Hospital in Arizona; and the sign to the main entrance at Mayo Clinic in Florida red, white and blue.
Ginsburg dedicated her life's work to the pursuit of equal rights for all. She was just the second woman to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court and is the first woman in the nation's history to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol. Mayo Clinic honors her service and her legacy with the lighting of its buildings, and offers its condolences to her family and the millions of Americans grieving this loss.
