American Jewish World Service (AJWS) Mourns the Passing of Common Cause President and Former Congressman Bob Edgar

NEW YORK, April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In response to the passing of Common Cause President and former Congressman Bob Edgar, please find below a statement from Ruth Messinger, President of American Jewish World Service:

"A light has gone out. The world has lost a great beacon for social change with the untimely death of Bob Edgar, distinguished former member of Congress and a faith leader who dedicated his life to working for social justice at home and abroad. It was my privilege to work with Bob on fair elections, on advancing democracy and, most particularly, to end the genocide in Darfur. I was honored to help support his work at Common Cause and to know that American Jewish World Service could always count on him as an ally in our efforts to achieve justice for some of the most oppressed people in the world."
