In a Coalition to Stop Gun Violence tweet, the group called Cumming’s passing “incredibly sad news,” describing him as not only “an icon for justice and peace,” but a voice for the voiceless and a warrior for his city & community.”
Incredibly sad news. @RepCummings was an icon for justice and peace. He was a voice for voiceless and warrior for his city & community.
He will be dearly missed in Baltimore, on Capitol Hill, and the entire nation.
