Congressman Ford's Statement On The Legacy Of Rosa Parks

Today, Congressman Ford released a statement on the legacy that will be left by Rosa Parks' courage and convictions.

"Rosa Parks' life was devoted to advancing the best of the American spirit and way. She was an example and inspiration for all freedom-seeking and freedom-loving people. It is amazing that her sitting made it possible for me and so many others to stand and run. This nation owes her a debt of gratitude for her courage and determination that can only be repaid by making America the country she wanted it to be for everyone."
