dotsJohn Lewis Bridge Project

Published on August 7, 2020 by Sonya's Spotlight

Change the Name of the Edmund Pettus Bridge

Your contribution — of any amount — will help us do the organizing and legislative work necessary to change the name of the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Alabama to the John Lewis Bridge, a civil rights icon that nearly gave his life on that bridge.

Renaming the Edmund Pettus Bridge is no easy task. We’re organizing on the ground, having important conversations, and upholding the legacy of Congressman Lewis. All of this takes a considerable amount of resources, which is why we have to ask:

If you can, please make a $5 donation to support our grassroots effort to rename the Edmund Pettus Bridge. Your support is so important to our efforts, we couldn’t do this without you.

Renaming the Edmund Pettus Bridge is long overdue. Congressman John Lewis almost lost his life on the bridge during Bloody Sunday. It’s incomprehensible that we still have landmarks to Confederate soldiers while Americans like John Lewis marched on this very bridge to promote equality and freedom.

We’re doing everything we can to honor Congressman Lewis and wipe away the stains of racism in our country. And your support is imperative to this movement.

Thank you for being a part of this team. Together, we’ll rename the Edmund Pettus Bridge and honor the legacy of Congressman John Lewis.

All my best,

Michael Starr Hopkins
Founder, John Lewis Bridge Project
