We mourn the loss of Representative John Lewis as he was a pillar of the civil rights movement. “John Lewis led us on the path for racial justice and equality on the Edmund Pettus Bridge. His lifetime of undaunted courage inspires us to continue in his footsteps, on his path, until equality is achieved. He is resting now. We owe it to him to push forward.” – Dolores Huerta, President & Founder of the Dolores Huerta Foundation. At 80 years of age, @repjohnlewis left an indelible impact on our country through his tireless efforts to improve our racial and political landscape. Rest in Power.
