It's a Blue Monday and ironically on this Presidents' Day, we also celebrate our Sigma Brother, the late Congressman John Lewis, on what would have been his 82nd birthday. This civil rights leader has been fighting since the 60s for equality especially the right to vote. Even until his death and now today, we're still fighting for the right to vote. Please join the men of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. and its SigmaPAC1914 as we raise funds to ensure that all eligible Americans can participate in the voting process. Feel free to give at https://secure.actblue.com/donate/sigmapac1914. Bro. Lewis is counting on us to carry on his legacy of protecting the ballot boxes.
