STATEMENT: City Treasurer Kurt Summers Statement on the Passing of Reverend Willie T. Barrow

Chicago City Treasurer Kurt Summers released the following statement on the passing of civil rights leader Rev. Willie T. Barrow:

“I join fellow Chicagoans in mourning the loss of a great leader, Reverend Willie T. Barrow. Reverend Barrow stood up when others backed down and used the power of her word to fight for social justice from Chicago to our nation’s capital. She taught us that despite our size or stature, our convictions and our beliefs are worthwhile.​ As an admirer, I was fortunate to have known and learned from Reverend Barrow. She was an inspiration. I send my most heartfelt sympathies to Reverend Barrow’s family, loved ones and many friends at Rainbow/PUSH Headquarters.”​
