A Message from Civil Rights Hero John Lewis

March 6, 2018

By Jared Polis

Civil rights hero U.S. Representative John Lewis is a living link to our all-too-recent history.

From being beaten in Selma while marching for equality, to leading sit-ins on the House floor to combat gun violence, his continued fight to make our country a better place is an inspiration to us all.

It is humbling beyond words to have the support of civil rights legend John Lewis in this race.

John Lewis reminds us why we do the work we do, because he has never ever given up the fight for a more equal and just America. He has been a personal inspiration to me, and it has been an honor to work alongside him. I have relied on his example more than ever as we navigate the challenging days of the Trump presidency.

Tonight you can honor the legacy of John Lewis and all the progress we have fought for by making your voice heard at 7:00 pm at your local Democratic caucus.

If you aren’t a registered Democrat or can’t make it tonight, please sign up here to volunteer to help us in the coming weeks and months.

I am proud to have worked side by side with John Lewis. We are motivated through a shared commitment to progress — whether it’s expanding health care for millions, standing up to Donald Trump, or fighting for the civil rights of all Americans.
