Secretary Merrill Statement on the Passing of Representative John Lewis

"Making noise and causing good, necessary trouble, John Lewis was an inspiration to an entire generation of activists for voting rights. His and other activists’ sacrifice of their bodies and their blood for the cause of equality in voting rights on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama lent courage to the legislators that ultimately passed the Voting Rights Act. His entire career was spent in the pursuit of justice and equality; we will miss him most at this particular moment in history. The world needs more good troublemakers and yesterday we lost one of the best."

- Connecticut Secretary of the State Denise Merrill
