In Briefings

Over the weekend we lost one of America’s heroes, civil rights icon, Congressman John Lewis. JDCA mourned the loss and honored the legacy of John Lewis, who shared our values about equality, justice and human rights. For 34 years, John Lewis served as the “conscience of Congress” and voice of moral leadership in the House of Representatives, where he earned and commanded deep respect from both sides of the aisle. We honor John Lewis by turning our grief into action and pledging to continue the fight for racial justice, even if it means getting into some “good trouble” along the way.

 

Join us on Tuesday, July 21, at 2pm ET for our next Dems Leading in Crisis webinar, America in Crisis: Remaking the Social Contract,” with Maryland Congressman Jamie Raskin. On the call, Rep. Raskin will share his memories and thoughts about the life and legacy of Congressman John Lewis. Rep. Raskin serves on the House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis, and will also discuss Democratic proposals for helping all Americans recover from this unprecedented public health and economic crisis. You can sign up for the call by clicking on the image below.
