Today, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-4) released this statement in honor of the Rosa Parks statue unveiling in the United States Capitol.
"I am proud to stand with President Obama and my colleagues from both sides of the aisle as we celebrate the life and legacy of civil rights leader Rosa Parks. Today's ceremony is a powerful moment in American history that transcends our political and ideological differences. The statue of Rosa Parks not only represents a great American hero, but signifies a battle for equality and a turning point in our American story.
"As we continue this story, may we harness the spirit of Rosa Parks and recommit ourselves to justice and the fight against inequality."
