In recognition and remembrance of the fight John Lewis led from the 1960s through his death in 2020 the League of Women Voters of the Ripon Area will host a candle lighting memorial for him on Saturday at Rotary Square in downtown Ripon.
It will begin at 8:30 p.m. with a prayer, light candles and perhaps sing a song or two.
Please join the League of Women Voters of the Ripon area for a candlelight vigil on the 1st Anniversary of the passing of John Lewis.
This is the "Good Trouble Tribute." Lewis was the architect of "Good Trouble."
Leagues from around Wisconsin will remember Representative Lewis for his principled fight to expand voting rights to all registered United States citizens.
His message is the same as the League of Women Voters to have educated voters and welcome all United States citizens to exercise their right to vote.
The League of Women Voters, a non-partisan political organization, encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
The League was founded in 1920 by Carrie Chapman Catt who was born in Ripon, Wisconsin.
