John Lewis Getting Into Good Trouble Since 1960

Today, we can log onto the Internet for information, download our favorite book or check out a best seller at our local library. But as a child in Alabama during the 1950’s, John Lewis couldn’t walk into his local library to read or check out a book. Segregated public facilities were common in the South at that time.

Getting Into Good Trouble for Children and Families

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, almost 50 million Americans are living in poverty and almost 16 million of them are children.

As a member of the Ways and Means Human Resources Subcommittee, Congressman Lewis has been getting in “good trouble” by fighting to protect programs serving women, children in foster care, and struggling families. 

Getting Into Good Trouble for Seniors

Seniors on fixed incomes have been choosing between rent and medication, and between food and going to the doctor. Seniors are our sacred treasures and deserve to be treated with respect and compassion and Congressman Lewis will continue to get in “good trouble” protecting our seniors. Legislation that offers them some financial relief and comfort is a step in the right direction. That is why Congressman Lewis voted to decrease Medicare Part B premiums for seniors and supported a social security 3.5 percent increase in cost of living adjustment (COLA).

Getting Into Good Trouble for Women

“It is not right,” said Rep. John Lewis.  “It is not fair.  It is not just that women doing the same job are not receiving equal compensation as men for the same work.”

 As a man who understands and has fought for equal protection for decades, Congressman Lewis is a vocal advocate who supports getting in “good trouble” for the rights of women.

Getting Into Good Trouble for Georgians

Rep. John Lewis, “There is nothing people talk about more than jobs.  Some have been searching for work for years.”

Welcome

Friends,

A few years ago, I gave a little blood on that bridge in Selma. I was beaten and left bloody but I never gave up, I never gave in. As a community we must have that same spirit. We must continue to stand up for equality, for women’s rights, and for our environment. We must protect our seniors and educate our children. It is time for us to get in the way. It is time for us to start some good trouble, some necessary trouble.

There are people out there who want to take us back. To them I say we have come too far to turn back. There is still work to be done. We have marched together before and as your Congressman its time for us to march together again. Let us join our arms once more and form immoveable lines as we march for a better Georgia.

I am asking for your support. I am asking for your vote.

Keep the Faith,

John Lewis Signature
