6. We Honored the Passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Toward the end of September, the nation lost one of its biggest social justice warriors, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She was the second female Supreme Court Justice, after Sandra Day O’Connor, to serve on the Court, and was well known for her fiery dissents, her tireless fight for gender equality, and her ability to overcome adversity. Read about her life and legacy.

7. We Researched Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett

On September 26th, President Donald Trump nominated Amy Coney Barrett, a conservative federal appeals court judge, to succeed Ginsburg. If confirmed, Barrett would keep the number of women serving on the Court at three, joining Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. She would also become the youngest member of the Court, and most importantly, she would shape a 6-3 conservative majority. Explore Barrett’s career and where she stands on major hot topics.

8. More Was Added to the U.S. Congressional Serial Set
