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 Reacts to Withdrawal from Paris Climate Agreement
“I was deeply concerned by this nation’s withdrawal from the Paris climate accord.  I do not agree with the dark vision of America’s future the president described that pits accepting responsibility for our environmental impact against the economic stability and vitality of our country.  “The president itemized damages to American industries and jobs, through our involvement with a non-binding agreement, but that same concern was critically absent from the budget he sent to Capitol Hill. In it he proposes to cut key supports for American workers, like the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP).  The MEP helps create or retain more than 80,000 American manufacturing jobs every year.  “This decision to withdraw from the Paris agreement lessens American strength, puts us at odds with our major allies, and leaves room for other nations, like China and the European Union, to fill the void our departure has created.  If we pull back and pull out of negotiations, we canno
Rep. John Lewis: Sharp Condemnation For Trump Budget and Health Bill
WASHINGTON – During a series of two House Ways & Means hearings today, Rep. John Lewis railed against the Trump Administration budget.  During the committee’s afternoon hearing with Secretary of the Treasury, Steve Mnuchin: “I’ve often said that a budget proposal is a statement of values and priorities.  This administration makes it crystal clear that the hungry, the middle class, the elderly, and the struggling will be left out and left behind. “This budget says more money for war, for guns, for weapons. This budget breaks promise after promise to the American people.  It erases Medicaid and Social Security, cuts funding for food assistance and support for those who have been left out and left behind. “We have a right to know what is in the food we eat, what is in the water we drink, and what is in the air we breathe. This budget cuts the Environmental Protection Administration.  This is not right, this is not fair, and It’s not just. I have a strange feelin
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.           
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
