(ATLANTA) – Today, Congresswoman Nikema Williams (GA-05) issued the following statement on the passing of former First Lady Rosalynn Carter.

Congresswoman Nikema Williams (GA-05) said: 

“My heart is heavy to learn of the passing of First Lady Rosalynn Carter, a remarkable public servant who led with grace and kindness. Rosalynn Carter worked tirelessly for women’s rights and is a shining example of the power women possess when given an opportunity. She used her opportunity to serve others as an advocate for mental health, peace, housing, and marginalized communities around the globe. 

“Rosalynn Carter made the world a better place and yet what she would likely say was her most noteworthy accomplishment was 77 years of loving, joyful marriage to President Jimmy Carter. 

“I will forever be inspired by Mrs. Carter’s lifetime of service and strive everyday to make sure my son—Carter—embodies that same commitment to service. My prayers during this difficult time are with President Carter, Jason, and the entire Carter Family.”
