AJC – “Honoring the Life and Legacy of Congressman John Lewis”

July 22, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Join AJC and founding members of the Congressional Black-Jewish Caucus on Wednesday, July 22 for a special program honoring the life and legacy of Congressman John Lewis, the civil rights giant who worked closely with the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and served more than 32 years in the U.S. House of Representatives. Representative Lewis’ relationship with AJC spanned decades, from his creation of the Atlanta Black-Jewish Coalition, to, most recently, serving as a co-chair for the bipartisan Congressional Black-Jewish Caucus, launched at the AJC Global Forum in June 2019. He was honored with AJC Atlanta’s Selig Distinguished Service Award (1994), AJC’s Congressional Leadership Award (2005), and AJC’s American Liberties Medallion (2018).
