Structured Settlements Industry Friend is a Civil Rights Icon

Structured Settlements Industry Friend is a Civil Rights Icon

August 28, 2013 – As we celebrate today’s 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, I’m honored to be able to say I have a friend in Congress who has a very personal connection to this historic event.

Rep. John LewisCongressman John Lewis (D-GA 5th District), Chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee ( SNCC) in 1963, was the youngest of the speakers to join Martin Luther King, Jr. on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial that day.

He was 23.

Rep. Lewis, recipient of the Profile in Courage Award in 2001, was in Washington again today to remind America of Dr. King’s vision and to reflect upon the issues of the day.

Along the way, in a long and distinguished career fighting for what’s right, Congressman Lewis became a natural advocate for structured settlements.

A leading voice for the benefits of structured settlements, Rep. Lewis addressed the National Structured Settlements Trade Association (NSSTA) at its annual meeting in 2010.

In honor of his many years of dedicated support to this industry, NSSTA created a special brochure to pay tribute to this fine man entitled:

An American hero on civil rights & structured settlements

How can I consider this living legend a friend?

Because, in his closing comments to our industry, this great, humble public servant, pledged his unwavering support of structured settlements by saying:

“you always have a friend in John Lewis as long as I’m serving in the Congress.”

Thank you, Congressman Lewis, for your tireless efforts to ensure the goal of justice for all is never forgotten and for your commitment to the structured settlements industry.

You’re a terrific friend!
