We were deeply saddened to learn today of the sudden passing of our friend and ally in the fight for a more inclusive democracy Bob Edgar, President of Common Cause. Our hearts go out to his family and friends as well as the board and staff at Common Cause.
Bob was a stalwart champion for democracy, working fervently to make our democratic processes more accessible and meaningful to citizens. Since 2007, his visionary leadership at Common Cause expanded the historic organization’s reach and impact. Demos was proud to work side by side with Bob and Common Cause on many issues in our nation’s capital and in the states.
Although the impact of his work will live on, we will miss his energy and passion for social justice in the days and years ahead.
— Miles Rapoport, President
