Statement from Governor Murphy on the Passing of Babs Siperstein

02/4/2019

 “In the long and proud history of New Jersey’s LGBTQ community, few voices spoke with the power and passion of Babs Siperstein. She was a tremendous advocate and good friend, and was never shy to push us to open our hearts and minds, and to move our thinking ever forward. Tammy and I join all who mourn her passing, and send our thoughts to her family. However, as we do, we should all take great comfort in how far we have come in the fight for equality and dignity under the law — and the fights that have been won in no small part because of Babs’ leadership. And, in her memory, we will continue to move forward.”
