Civil Rights Pioneer’s Continuing Fight

When: Saturday, July 08 2017 @ 01:30 PM - - 03:30PM
Where: Niles Discovery Church
36600 Niles Blvd.
Fremont, CA 94536
Description: When Congressman John Lewis advocates “get in the way,” he stands behind his words, whether advancing civil rights in the 1960s or leading a 26-hour sit-in for gun control in the House a year ago following the Orlando shootings. Former chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), an original Freedom Rider and a leader of the Selma march on Bloody Sunday, Lewis has always advocated nonviolence. “Non-violence is love in action,” and Lewis still has plenty to spread around. Lewis’ exemplary story will inspire you to get in the way.

This event is sponsored by co-sponsored by Niles Discovery Church and the San Jose Peace & Justice Center
