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.”
