Sen. Ossoff Leading Push to Commemorate Congressman John Lewis’ Life with New Postal Stamp

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff is leading the push for a new postal stamp to commemorate the life and legacy of his mentor, the late Congressman John Lewis.

In a letter addressed to the Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee, Sen. Ossoff urged the Committee to recommend approval of a stamp highlighting the late Congressman’s legacy as a leader and champion for civil and human rights.

“Congressman Lewis was an American hero, civil rights icon, and revered citizen of Georgia, fully deserving of this honor,” Sen. Ossoff wrote. “His courage serves as an extraordinary example of civic leadership, and continues to inspire young Americans to serve their communities and build a better world. I am honored to represent Congressman Lewis’ home state of Georgia in the United States Senate and to lead the Senate effort to honor him with a commemorative stamp. I respectfully urge the Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee to recommend to the Postmaster General approval for its issuance.”

As his first piece of legislation, Sen. Ossoff introduced and passed a bicameral resolution honoring the life and legacy of the late Congressman.
