Remembering Our Beloved Congresswoman

Leader, Educator, Mentor, Legend

The Honorable Congresswoman Carrie Pittman Meek
April 29, 1926 - November 28, 2021

The From day one, starting out as just a “Tiny Tot” to those who knew her well, Carrie Pittman Meek would not be counted out. That fighting spirit carried through her entire life, all the way from the quiet streets of Tallahassee to the halls of Congress in Washington.

Now, after almost a century well-lived, we’re so full of gratitude for the legacy of love she leaves for us to carry forward … love for her family, love for her community and most of all, love for the people who society often counted out, but she dedicated her life to lifting up.

Carrie will forever stand peerless in our hearts. Rest in Power, Congresswoman.
