Statement on the Passing of John Lewis

Statement from Julia Bryan, Chair of Democrats Abroad

Our hearts are heavy with sorrow today. John Lewis inspired so many of us in Democrats Abroad through his actions, his words and his welcome. We hold tight to his reminders about the importance of getting up to a little good trouble, and above all remembering that the "right to vote is precious and almost sacred, and one of the most important blessings of our democracy." We will carry that reminder with us for the rest of our lives, working to share it as far and wide as we can.

Thank you so much for your courage, and for your life long fight for the cause of justice. Rest in peace, rest in power.
