WASHINGTON DC- Congressman Cedric Richmond (LA-02) released the following statement after the passing of community and civic activist Felicia Kahn:

“Felicia Kahn was a giant in the city of New Orleans and her work and passion gained her admiration throughout the country,” said Rep. Richmond.  “One was never confused about her values or priorities, she was always in pursuit of the upward mobility and wellness of everyone.  With her death we lost a champion for the advancement of women, and our commitment should be to carry on that work with the same determination and vigor.”

“We will miss Felicia’s passion and vitality.  Our city and the nation is better off because of the work she carried out each day.”
