VOTE! For John Lewis



John Lewis is a civil-rights icon who dedicated his life to the never ending fight for social justice. He was the personification of “walking the walk.”



This campaign is a tribute to John Lewis' legacy and a continuation of his life's work.

In his words, "I have been beaten, my skull fractured, and arrested more than forty times so that each and every person has the right to register and vote. Do your part. Get out there and vote like you’ve never voted before."

For the past 33 years he proudly served in the US House of Representatives for Georgia's 5th congressional district... But this year, the first time since 1986, Georgian’s won’t have the opportunity to vote for John Lewis... That's why in 2020 we MUST vote in honor of John Lewis.



This is a citizen-led initiative to spread John Lewis' message across Georgia in the run-up to this historic election in which the “Soul of Our Nation” is at stake.



We hope to increase civic engagement and voter turnout.



Our goal is to raise $30,000 via GoFundMe in order to print, install and distribute:



  • 17 Billboards
  • 170 Yard Signs
  • 170 Vinyl Banners
  • 1,700 Posters



... and more!

(Note: Mr. Lewis served 17 sessions in the U.S. House of Representatives)



In the 2018 midterm elections, there were over 890,000 registered black voters that didn't cast a ballot. Using public voting records we have strategically targeted counties across Georgia that will have the most impact on the upcoming election.



Our call-to-action features the dates for early voting in Georgia (Oct 12-30) which will be essential to increasing overall turnout, minimizing voter suppression and decreasing complications on November 3rd.



Any additional money raised will fund new billboards, yard signs, posters, etc across key counties in Georgia.
