Statement from President Clinton and Secretary Clinton on the Passing of Rosalynn Carter

 

Rosalynn Carter was a compassionate and committed champion of human dignity everywhere.

Throughout her long, remarkable life, she was an unwavering voice for the overlooked and underrepresented.  Thanks to her mental health advocacy, more people live with better care and less stigma.  Because of her early leadership on childhood immunization, millions of Americans have grown up healthier.  And through her decades of work at the Carter Center and with Habitat for Humanity, she spread hope, health, and democracy across the globe.

Rosalynn will be forever remembered as the embodiment of a life lived with purpose.  Hillary and I are deeply grateful for her extraordinary service to our nation and world, and for more than forty years of friendship.  Our prayers are with President Carter, Jack, Chip, Jeff, Amy, and the entire Carter family.
