Van Hollen Statement on Passing of Madeleine Albright

Today, U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) released the following statement on the passing of former Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright:

“Madeleine was a trailblazer, a leader, a seasoned diplomat, and a champion for all humankind. After arriving in the United States as a refugee, she always fought to give a voice to the voiceless. And she was a force to be reckoned with. Even in the challenges we face today, her lasting impact is still so present – including in her advocacy for Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic to join NATO. Her amazing life is a testament to her courage and leadership. This is a devastating loss – Katherine and I send our deepest condolences to her family.”
