Rep. John Lewis Introduces SAFETY Through Non-Violence Act


Rep. John Lewis re-introduced a bill establishing a national initiative to make federal grants to community advocates, local, state, and tribal governments to teach the principles and discipline of non-violence to American youth. Lewis first heard about non-violent activism as a teenager when he was only 15 years old. He heard Martin Luther King Jr. talking about the non-violent struggle in the city of Montgomery, and that radio broadcast changed his life. He knew then that he wanted to participate in the work of non-violent change ensuing in America. To this day, he himself is still an ...

Congressman John Lewis visited the Occupy Atlanta rally at Woodruff Park last night approximately 45 minutes after its planning session, or General Assembly, started.

Rep. John Lewis on Reprehensible Actions Of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad
“I watched in horror today at the news reports of the chemical weapons attack on the Syrian people.  Tiny little children, babies in their mothers’ arms were struggling for life.  Their innocent beauty and the hopefulness in their little eyes was deeply distressing, knowing that their lives have been change forever.  “While they were sleeping, a crime was committed against them by the leaders of their own nation, a crime that their parents could never combat or defend them against.  This is the worst kind of violence and abuse by a government against its people.  It is not only a crime against the defenseless people of Syria, but against every innocent human being on this planet. “As a world community, we must speak out in the face of such a heinous crime.   If we allow these horrible actions to go unchecked, unmatched by criticism and dissent, we leave room for this kind of violence to happen again in Syria or anywhere else in the world.  “As people of good consc
Rep. John Lewis on Trump’s Divisive and Likely Unconstitutional Executive Order
                “Just when I thought the news from the White House could not get any worse, Donald Trump signs another hypocritical executive order.  From the moment he set foot in the Oval Office, he has done exactly what he falsely accused President Barack Obama of doing.  He is by-passing the legislative role of Congress, negating the fundamental value of public argument and debate, and changing the foundation of American law.              “These actions are not even designed to assert the will of the people, which is the real purpose of the discretionary power of the president. They are orders that strengthen the hand of a small group of Americans at the expense of our democracy. “I will never understand what is so attractive about discrimination that people really want to be free to do it.  People actually advocated for the room to humiliate, degrade, and reject other human beings whom they believe God has given them the license to offend.  “As
Rep. John Lewis Condemns TrumpCare Bill As Despicable
“Today we are facing a crossroads in the history of this nation.  One day our children and our children’s children may turn to us and ask, “Which side were you on?”  In the aftermath of this vote, members of the House will have to look their constituents, their friends, their family and even their children in the eyes and tell them the painful truth. “The House Republican bill, H.R. 1628, does not rescue health care.  It is an attack on the poor, the sick, the elderly and the disabled. It punishes hard-working women and men, and it uses their resources collected in the federal Treasury as a pipeline to line the pockets of big business and the wealthiest people in the world. “Never ever in my years in the U.S. House of Representatives have I seen such a betrayal of the public trust.  Never have I seen legislative action that reveals such clear disdain for the human dignity of the most vulnerable among us.  Never have I ever seen such a willingness to disregard what
Rep. John Lewis on So-Called “Election Integrity Commission"
              “I am not certain what more the White House could do to signal its utter disregard for the democratic process in this country.  While we as a nation are trying to evaluate why the FBI director was fired shortly after he requested more funds to continue the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, the president moves to establish a so-called “election integrity” commission.               “Study after study based on the facts indicates  “ improper non-citizen votes amounts to .0001 percent” of studied districts in the 2016 election, according to the Brennan Center for Justice.  The idea that voter impersonation impacts the integrity of U.S. elections is a myth fomented by those who want to make it harder and more difficult for minorities to vote.  Some want an unfair advantage that allows them to disregard minorities and still win seats even in cities where minority populations are the majority.
