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.

Reasons for signing

  • John Lewis is the hardest working member of Congress and asset to the Atlanta area, Georgia, and the rest of the country. It has been a personal honor to meet and know Congressman Lewis. He is a legend!
  • Promoting the confederacy is an abomination.
  • This bridge was named after an segregationist, which was a thing of the past. This bridge should represent everyone of the present day and future.
