Congressional Black Caucus Mourns the Passing of Congressman Alcee Hastings

The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) issued the following statement on the passing of Vice Chairman of the House Rules Committee and Congressional Black Caucus Member, Congressman Alcee L. Hastings (FL-20).

The Congressional Black Caucus is heartbroken and mourns the loss of our colleague and brother Congressman Alcee Hasting s, a fearless fighter for his District and a leading voice in the fight for civil and voting rights.

First elected in 1992, Alcee Hastings was a longtime Member of the powerful House Committee on Rules. Congressman Hastings never forgot where he came from and continued to fight up until his last breath. Diagnosed with Stage Four Pancreatic Cancer in 2018, Alcee brought his same indomitable fighting spirit to his battle against that devastating illness.

Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Joyce Beatty said on behalf of the CBC, "While we mourn the loss of our brother, his life and legacy will continue to be a part of our power and our message, and will serve as a motivation for those who will follow in his footsteps - as leaders, fighters and advocates who represent the best of what our nation has to offer."

May his memory serve as a comfort to his loved ones and those who join us in mourning his passing. Rest well, our dear brother...we'll take it from here.
