NEW YORK — Following the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the group behind the Women's March has called on members to organize similar events across the country Saturday.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, socially distant events will be held across the country “to send an unmistakable message about the fierce opposition to Trump and his agenda, including his attempt to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat,” the organization said in its website.

The late Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg died last month. Despite several Republicans previously saying they would not replace a Supreme Court judge during a presidential election year, and Ginburg's dying wish to be replaced after a new president was elected, President Donald Trump nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who went through several days of confirmation hearings and questioning.

Rallies and marches, both in-person and virtual, will take place Saturday across the country.
