In South Carolina, the South Carolina Democratic Women's Council is hosting a "Black-Out" Candlelight Vigil at 8 p.m. at the Orangeburg County Courthouse in Orangeburg.
Organizers say the event is open to the public, and they encourage people to wear all black to represent a unified commitment to "re-build American democracy."
"John Lewis is a matriarch; he's legendary," said Latisha Walker, Sixth Congressional District Director for the South Carolina Democratic Women's Council. "We're honoring him with a candlelight vigil at the Orangeburg County Courthouse. That's the least we can do for all the things he has done for us."
"He means my freedom," explained Walker. "He gave me the right to know that my vote and voice matters."
