Join Representative Adriano Espaillat in collaboration with The Abyssinian Baptist Church in the City of New York, for a special virtual tribute honoring the life and legacy of the late Congressman John Robert Lewis.
The event is a celebration of his impact on New York’s 13th congressional district and communities around the nation.
During the virtual event, New York City and New York State elected leaders, community organizers and local civil rights organizations will share sentiments and reflections about how Rep. Lewis touched their lives and encouraged their work to ensure equality and justice for all.
“With the passing of our dear friend, Congressman John Lewis, America lost a giant and a hero in our fight to start a little ‘good trouble’ to ensure that all Americans have the same access and opportunity to the American Dream,” said Rep. Adriano Espaillat. “Congressman Lewis’s legacy will be remembered for generations and it is up to each of us to ensure that we continue to walk the walk and talk the talk to champion freedom and uphold American values. I look forward to hearing from constituents and sharing thoughts and memories of how Congressman Lewis touched our lives.”
