“We are going to pass the John Lewis
Voting Bill,” Cong. Hakeem Jeffries
In addressing a live and virtual audience

was murdered in Alabama.
“Never again!” she implored.
Councilwoman Hudson made an
indelible impression on the audience
imploring them to “honor Dr. King.”’
Considering that elected officials
remain burdened by campaign promises,
each speaker attempted to mention
priorities they face.
