    The Milwaukee Urban League would like to send our condolences to the family, friends, staff, constituents, and loved ones of Congressman Elijah Cummings. He was a true pioneer and icon for equity and this is a loss not only for Baltimore, but for all of those who invested in the fight for civil rights and justice for all. 

    May he rest in Power.
