Rename the Edmund Pettus Bridge for Congressman John Lewis

Rename the Edmund Pettus Bridge for Congressman John Lewis

Rename the Edmund Pettus Fridge after Congressman John Lewis because done Lewis is a civil rights icon and Edmund Pettus was a symbol of Confederate racism.

Why is this important?

It's an important thing to honor Congressman John Lewis who is the son of Alabama and show that Alabama has changed to understand the importance of civil rights for all people, especially since Congressman Lewis spilled blood on that bridge in 1963.
