Admirers of RBG were invited to drop off flower and lei for the vigil, or join in on their own. A local artist also created a large portrait of the late justice wearing a colorful lei po’o.

It was all part of the “RBG Hawaii Day of Action” which wrapped up a week of events commemorating the Supreme Court Justice.

Organizers are calling on Congress to wait on filling Ginburg’s seat until after the election. But Senate Republicans have fast tracked Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the high court.
