Gov. Walz joins states across U.S. in ordering flags at half-staff to honor John Lewis

Flag-HalfStaff

Governor Tim Walz today directed all flags at state and federal buildings in Minnesota to be flown at half-staff, effective immediately, until sunset today, July 18, 2020, to honor Representative John Lewis, who passed away on Friday.

Lewis was a stalwart of the Civil Rights movement — one of the original Freedom Riders, chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, the youngest speaker at the March on Washington, leader of the march from Selma to Montgomery, and a member of Congress representing the people of Georgia for 33 years.
