Earlier this month, Rep. Jan Schakowsky joined President Obama, civil rights hero Rep. John Lewis, and many others in Selma, Alabama, to honor the Voting Rights Act and the brave individuals who fought and sacrificed to expand civil rights in our country.
Rep. John Lewis said:
“My beloved brothers and sisters, it is a great honor for me to return to my home state of Alabama to present to you, not to introduce to you, but to present to you the President of the United States.  If someone had told me when we were crossing this bridge, that one day I would be back here introducing the first African-American President I would have said you were crazy.”
Don’t forget the incredible progress that we, as a nation, have made.
More importantly, don’t forget about all the work still in front of us.
