“Elijah Cummings’ life exemplified what we at Points of Light hold up and support through our mission – a belief that the most powerful force in the world is the individual who has realized their power to do good, and who applies their time, talent, and resources to make a positive difference. As a civil rights activist and public servant for more than 30 years, he dedicated his life of service to uplifting and empowering the people he was sworn to represent. Rep. Cummings recently said, ‘My life is based on pain, passion, and purpose.’ His principled leadership and fight for justice, equality and fairness will live on in the memories of the generations he has inspired.”
