Celebrating a New Start

The line of cars stretched for blocks. While most of Culver City, California, was staying home and socially distancing as a result of COVID-19, Habitat for Humanity Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA) supporters still wanted to find a way to welcome their newest neighbors—even if that meant doing so from at least 6 feet away.

Habitat for Humanity International CEO: John Lewis showed us how to make good trouble
Habitat for Humanity International CEO Jonathan Reckford issued the following statement on the passing of Congressman John Lewis. Lewis represented Georgia’s 5th Congressional District, which includes Habitat’s Atlanta headquarters.

"John Lewis was an American hero. He was a champion for our country and our city of Atlanta. And he was a builder. A builder of peace and justice, and a builder of the Beloved Community that we seek. He built with every tool he had, and when he had only his body to give, he gave that too. From the Edmund Pettus Bridge to the halls of Congress, John Lewis showed that a single person with a commitment to righting injustices has the power to effect change."
