Raleigh, NC, July 18, 2020 – The nation has lost a tremendous civil rights leader with the passing of Congressman John Lewis. He was truly an iconic visionary who worked tirelessly for civil rights in our nation. A powerful inspiration in life, Congressman Lewis’s legacy will inspire people to keep up the fight for freedom and equality. LWVNC President Jo Nicholas met Congressman Lewis at a LWVUS convention and was inspired when she heard him speak about the need for all people to work together, regardless of race, gender, or sexuality, to make our democracy stronger. We honor Congressman Lewis’s life by committing to continue his fight.
