Democratic Party of Georgia Remembers Congressman John Lewis on First Anniversary of His Passing

July 17, 2021

Today, on the first anniversary of the passing of civil rights icon Congressman John Lewis, Congresswoman Nikema Williams, Chair of the Democratic Party of Georgia, released the following statement:

“One year ago today, Georgia lost a giant in Congressman John Lewis. While I know he would be proud of the progress our beloved state and country have made, he’d also be the first to remind us of the long march ahead toward a more righteous future for all. As a new generation of leaders steps up to carry on his legacy, we have an obligation to honor his life’s work. This includes passing federal voting rights legislation, which he played a crucial role in crafting and which guarantees all Americans free and fair access to the ballot – an effort he dedicated his life to realizing. May Congressman John Lewis’ memory serve as inspiration in the continued fight for justice, freedom, and equality for all.”
