Memorial Service for John Lewis


Church Tornto will be hosting a Memorial Service for the late John Lewis in AltspaceVR.

"The life of the US congressman John Lewis, who has died aged 80 after suffering from pancreatic cancer, is a paradigm for the history of race relations in the US over those eight decades. Born into segregation, Lewis took a leadership role in civil rights protest as a young man, and was at the heart of many of the most crucial, and dangerous, events in that movement. He was beaten by the Ku Klux Klan and by the police, jailed repeatedly, and continually forced to move forward while ignoring friendly voices warning him not to push too hard against the apartheid legislated in large parts of America." - The Guardian

Staff and Volunteers extend condolence to the family.

The Real Life funeral for John Lewis was held on July 30th, 2020.
