Name the KSU campus green after John R. Lewis

Name the KSU campus green after John R. Lewis

Officially name the campus green the "John Robert Lewis Green" and create a plaque commemorating the naming of the John Robert Lewis Green.

Why is this important?

John Lewis fought for Civil Rights throughout his entire life. He was one of the "Big 6" organizers for the March on Washington, the Chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee in the 60s, and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama in 2011.

Congressman Lewis marched, sat in, and did whatever he could to push forward the cause for civil rights. His legacy still impacts the US and the world today.

John Lewis took his fight to Congress on behalf of the people of Georgia, where he represented Georgia's 5th Congressional District for over 20 years. He worked to ensure all Georgians were taken care of and our university should honor the late John Lewis with the naming of the John Robert Lewis Green, which will be known to students as the "Lewis Green" or "John Lewis Green".

Tell the KSU administration to support this proposal and naming of the green after the late John Lewis by signing this petition.
