“The Philanthropy Roundtable and its Alliance for Charitable Reform join the nation in mourning the passing of Congressman John Lewis (D-GA), an American hero whose impact on our country and commitment to progress transcended politics. Mr. Lewis brought grace, strength and humility to every challenge he took on; his unwavering commitment to principle serves as a model for us all. His work to help the charitable sector flourish while encouraging all Americans to engage in civil society underscored the importance he placed on voluntary action to improve communities.
