AHRC Deeply Mourns the Death of Rep. Isaac Robinson. Robinson died Sunday March 29, 2020
The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) expresses its profound grievance and sadness for the tragic loss of State Rep. Isaac Robinson. Mr. Robinson died on Sunday, March 29, 2020 at age 44. His death is believed to be caused by health complications caused by COVID 19. Isaac was an honorable man, a true believer in human rights.
Rep. Robinson was a founding member of the AHRC. He was a devoted public servant who served his district and the people of Michigan with honor and selfless dedication. He was a tireless fighter and a strong advocate for social justice and equality. Even though he was a man with a sense of humor and an easy smile, he had steely determination. He was a big brother to all who knew him. He never hesitated to give a helping hand to anyone who asked him assistance. He was a straight shooter, and blunt but with utmost respect and professionalism.
AHRC is truly saddened by the passing of Rep Robinson. For years, he helped advance the mission and the cause of human rights by being one of our prime activists and members. He never spared an occasion to provide any needed support. His contribution to the civil rights, human rights and social justice are immense. His passing is a sad day for all of his friends and all who worked with him over the years.
AHRC will miss Isaac dearly, as he was part of every AHRC event, especially the annual AHRC Spirit of Humanity Awards & Gala Dinner. He was very social and loved people. He connected with people of all kinds of backgrounds. The AHRC & its Gala will never be the same after his passing.
