In response to the passing of General Colin Powell, Issue One CEO and Founder Nick Penniman issued the following statement:

“General Colin Powell was a venerable statesman who leaves behind a lasting and remarkable legacy of service to the country and civic leadership. As the first Black chairman of the Joint Chiefs and Secretary of State, his barrier-breaking career embodied the full promise of the American dream, and his authority and stature earned him praise from leaders on both sides of the political aisle. I join with others in mourning his loss and offer my sincere condolences to his family, who loved him dearly. The world has lost a noble figure, and we will never forget his service to our nation.”
