“The city of Atlanta, this nation, and the rest of the world mourns the loss of the iconic John Robert Lewis. Congressman Lewis was a tireless champion in the Civil Rights movement, whose never-ending fight for equality and justice improved the lives of millions of Americans. He was a kind and decent man who always had kind and decent words for the employees of UPS. Congressman Lewis led by example and embodied the very best of America’s ideals."
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. We not only honor Congressman Lewis for his selfless sacrifices, but we commit to continue his legacy to advance racial justice and equity around the globe.”
