Statement by Vice President Kamala Harris on the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act
Congressman John Lewis was an American hero who dedicated his life to fighting for our nation’s highest ideals. Today, the House of Representatives honored Congressman Lewis by passing his namesake legislation, which restores and expands the historic Voting Rights Act. This important step represents progress, but there is more work to do. The Senate must pass the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act so it can become the law of the land and protect voters across the country.
