“GET IN TROUBLE, GET IN GOOD TROUBLE...” - RIP John Lewis

Everyday we are inspired by the courage of John Lewis. The courage to stand up to whoever and let them know how you feel and getting that message across in a non-violent manner.

As a student, Lewis became an activist in the civil rights movement. He organized sit-ins at segregated lunch counters in Nashville and took part in many other civil rights activities as part of the Nashville Student Movement. The Nashville sit-in movement was responsible for the desegregation of lunch counters in the city's downtown. Lewis was arrested and jailed many times during the nonviolent activities to desegregate the city's downtown businesses. He was also instrumental in organizing bus boycotts and other nonviolent protests to support voting rights and racial equality.

During this time, Lewis said it was important to engage in "good trouble, necessary trouble" in order to achieve change, and he held by the phrase and philosophy throughout his life.
