“It is with profound sadness that we join the people of Virginia and the McEachin family in mourning the loss of our dear friend and colleague, the honorable Congressman Donald McEachin. Congressman McEachin was a tireless advocate for the people of Virginia and our nation. He dedicated his life to advancing America’s working families, creating economic opportunities, and promoting environmental justice for all. He leaves an unparalleled legacy of excellence and integrity, and we will honor that legacy with our continued dedication to the issues which he championed”, said Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Joyce Beatty. “Congressman McEachin was an outspoken and active member of our CBC family, and his presence will be sorely missed. We send our heartfelt condolences to his loving wife Colette, their dear children Mac, Briana, and Alexandra, grandchild Gael, and the entire McEachin family. May his memory be a blessing.”
