Get In Good Trouble
July 19th, 2020 – Today, The Lincoln Project released a video, paying its respects to the life and legacy of Civil Rights leader, and Georgia Congressman, John Lewis. In the video his voice calls out to Americans, asking them to, “Wake up!” It is our duty to ensure his message lives on.
“John Lewis deeply loved America and her people. So much so, that he made it his life’s mission to ensure that this great country lives up to its original promise, freedom and justice for all. And when America failed and faltered in carrying out this promise, John Lewis, for six decades, willingly and patriotically sacrificed himself to right her course,” said Lincoln Project co-founder, Reed Galen. He continued, “he exemplified love, dignity and perseverance, and understood that ‘good trouble’ is what America has always been about.”
Lincoln Project co-founder John Weaver said, “American hero, Rep. John Lewis, gave voice to the Beatitudes through his fight for the poor, the meek, the hungry. With us in both spirit and energy is John as we get into Good Trouble, sweeping out the evil and injustices of this barbaric Administration.”
On November 3rd, Americans will have the opportunity to embody Lewis’ spirit, take up his mantle, and finish his task by exercising their right to vote. In doing so, Americans will return dignity to the White House.
