Federal Way flags at half-staff in memory of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Justice Ginsburg died at age 87 on Friday, Sept. 18.

Flags throughout Federal Way will be set at half-staff in honor of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died the age of 87 on Friday (Sept. 18).

The flags will remain at half-staff until the day of internment, as per Gov. Jay Inslee’s order. Her death was due to complications of metastatic pancreatic cancer.

Ginsburg served 27 years on the Supreme Court after she was nominated by President Bill Clinton in 1993.

“Justice Ginsberg dedicated her life to promoting gender equality and defending the rights of all people. She was a true champion for justice and our nation’s highest ideals. She has left a deep impression on how we know America today,” said Federal Way Mayor Jim Ferrell.

“As our nation grapples with various social justice issues today, it’s important to remember what she once said: ‘Real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time.’”
