John Lewis Global Voting Rights Day Forum

This event is sponsored by the DA John Lewis Global Voting Right Day Committee, The Global Black Caucus, and the Progressive Caucus.

“Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble.”
~John Lewis
