Following the passing of U.S. Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, ALX Community and Mindful Junkie coordinated a candlelight vigil.

Mourners met in Market Square, walked down King Street and to pay tribute to the life adn work of RBG. Battery operated candles were distributed and speakers led the crowd in a moment of silence to reflect on RBG's life, work and service.

Kelly Grant, Partner and COO of ALX Community and a coordinator of the vigil said, 'We all have a little Ruth in us. We have a chance to be brave, the opportunity to actively listen to others even when we don’t agree, stand up for our beliefs, and use our lives to serve others who are less fortunate.'
