John Lewis (D-Georgia, 5th District)

Lewis marched with Martin Luther King Jr. over the Edmund Pettis Bridge during the “Bloody Sunday” trek from Birmingham to Selma, Alabama. We’ll use him as a stand in for everyone else who marched and was recognized with Congressional Medals of Freedom. Aside from that achievement, which helped usher in the Voting Rights Act of 1965, Lewis now serves as a U.S. Representative for Georgia’s 5th congressional district.
