U.S. Representative Pramila Jayapal (WA-07), Co-Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, issued the following statement last night on the passing of the Honorable Congressman John Lewis:
“From sitting-in at lunch counters to riding for freedom across the Deep South, from crossing that bridge in Selma to walking these halls in Congress, John Lewis was a true American hero who never stopped fighting for what is right.
“We must continue his march towards justice.
“We must make good trouble in his name.
“And we must never give up, never give in.
“Rest in power.”
