SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) — A candlelight vigil was held in San Francisco Friday night for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, according to Senator Scott Wiener.

Ginsburg died Friday at her home in Washington of complications from metastatic pancreatic cancer, the court said. She was 87.

She was often called just by her initials – R.B.G.

Justice Ginsburg was popular across the nation but she was a particular favorite in the Bay Area.

People gathered at Harvey Milk Plaza in San Francisco at 7 p.m. to honor her.

“Let’s mourn & then get ready to fight,” Wiener wrote on Twitter.

Wiener is advising attendees to wear a mask, maintain distance and bring candles.

Politicians and celebrities took to social media immediately after the news broke to remember and honor RBG.
