LatinoJustice Statement on the Passing of Representative John Lewis

You have a moral obligation, a mission and a mandate (...) to go out and seek justice for all. You can do it. You must do it." - Rep. John Lewis (1940-2020)

We mourn the passing of #civilrights icon #johnlewis whose exemplary life taught us about the virtue of getting into good, necessary trouble. We look ahead inspired by his legacy and armed with his #courage in our fight for #justiceforall. 

Democracy in America was transformed by the legacy of John Lewis and for that LatinoJustice recommits to ensuring its promise will shine in honor of this civil rights legend.

Rest in power, sir.
