Last month, two historic civil rights leaders passed away. Georgia Congressman John Lewis was one of the original 13 Freedom Fighters, a founder of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, and an organizer for the March on Washington. He fought for justice on the frontlines and in Congress. Reverend C.T. Vivian was a member of Dr. King's council of advisors and an activist dedicated to nonviolence. We pay tribute to our brothers who will forever inspire us to lead by their examples, on the paths they've paved for freedom and justice. Their legacies live on in the younger generations.
This summer, The LOHM partnered with the John Jay College of Criminal Justice to work with up and coming change makers. Our interns are passionate and committed to causing good trouble.
