Good and Necessary Trouble...

We will stand up for what is right, fair and just.

OUR MISSION

The mission of John R. Lewis Legacy Institute is to promote diversity, support civil rights education, and engage in community service projects that foster the legacy of the late Congressman John R. Lewis.

SOCIAL

JUSTICE

"A democracy cannot thrive where power remains unchecked and justice is reserved for a select few."
-JRL 

EQUITY IN

EDUCATION

"There are hundreds and thousands of young Americans who cannot or will not receive an education, because in order to get an education, you have to spend money."
-JRL

"Ours is not the struggle of one day, one week, or one year. Ours is not the struggle of one judicial appointment or presidential term. Ours is the struggle of a lifetime, or maybe even many lifetimes, and each one of us in every generation must do our part."
