Rep. Grijalva Statement on Passing of Sandra Day O’Connor

WASHINGTON – Today, Representative Raúl M. Grijalva (AZ-07) issued the following statement:

“I join the millions of Americans mourning the passing of Sandra Day O’Connor. Her life exemplified diligent public service and dedication to our democracy. She was a role model and paved the way for future generations of women to practice law. As the first woman to sit on the Supreme Court, she broke an important glass ceiling while navigating a male dominated workplace and pushed the boundaries for women in the legal profession. She leaves a legacy of civics education in our country’s schools and her opinions will continue to have a lasting impact on the history of this nation. Mona and I send our sympathies to her family and loved ones. She will be missed.”
