Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka On the Passing of Senator Dan Inouye

Senator Dan Inouye was the person every American aspires to be. His courage under fire, visionary leadership and love for his country and his constituents are an inspiration for everyone. From a war hero to a United States Senator, Sen. Inouye exemplified America’s values. He fought valiantly, broke down barriers and was a fierce advocate for what is right and good. Our nation lost an America hero yesterday. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
