A democracy cannot thrive where power remains unchecked and justice is reserved for a select few. Ignoring these cries and failing to respond to this movement is simply not an option โ€” for peace cannot exist where justice is not served.โ€

โ€• John Lewis, on the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act

This event is part of the 2022 event series “Necessary Trouble: Thinking with the Legacy of John R. Lewis.” In anticipation and in honor of the dedication of John R.
