Congresswoman Barbara Lee and Colleagues Celebrate the Life and Legacy of Congressman Ronald V. Dellums

Washington, D.C. – This afternoon, Congresswoman Barbara and her congressional colleagues held a Moment of Silence and Special Order Hour to celebrate the life and legacy of Congressman Ronald V. Dellums. 

“Congressman Dellums will be remembered not only for his many accomplishments but for his integrity and brilliance. He was a courageous statesman, a warrior for world peace, a soldier for social justice, and a son of West Oakland. He served his country in the Marines, and in this Congress with distinction for 27 years, and as Mayor of Oakland for four years,” said Congresswoman Lee. “He was beloved by his East Bay constituents, regarded by his Congressional colleagues from both parties, and respected as a global leader. Above all else, Congressman Dellums was a visionary, and his conscience guided him in his pursuit of peace, justice and equality in all forms.”
