Congressman John Lewis is often called “one of the most courageous persons the Civil Rights Movement ever produced.” He has dedicated his life to protect human rights, and to fight for voting rights and racial justice.
Using interviews and rare archival footage, John Lewis: Good Trouble chronicles Lewis’ 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action exploring his childhood experiences, inspiring family, and the fateful meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1957. As part of the film’s impact campaign, All In Together is partnering with Participant Media and other organizations to register voters and expand access to the ballot in advance of this year’s elections.
This #TakeActionTuesday, join AIT and Participant Media to get in good trouble.
