Washington, D.C. — Patrick Gaspard, president of the Center for American Progress, released the following statement on the passing of Common Cause President Karen Hobert Flynn:
Karen spent her life devoted to making our democracy stronger and more inclusive for all. She was a creative and tenacious force who made Common Cause one of the nation’s most respected organizations fighting to preserve America’s democratic values. She helped secure important government reforms at the federal, state, and local levels and was a tireless champion to protect voting rights, limit the influence of money in politics, and promote ethical behavior in government. The nation owes Karen a debt of gratitude. We hold her family and our partner organization Common Cause in our thoughts and prayers.
