The world has lost a towering force that forged the way for modern civil rights activism.
Congressman John Lewis dedicated his life to the civil rights movement and paved a road for the advancement of equality, justice, human rights and peace in the US which rippled around the world. His display of unyielding activism and community engagement reflects the values of our chapter and the UNA as a collective.
Today is also Mandela Day. We reflect on the lives of these two great leaders, Nelson Mandela and John Lewis. It is now our responsibility to honor and continue their legacies through our work in the UNA-USA and our stewardship of the UN Charter and Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
We send our condolences to Mr. Lewis’ family, friends, our UNA-USA Atlanta Chapter and the City of Atlanta.
