Congressman John Lewis, thank you for your courage leading the fight for Freedom. You taught us what getting into #goodtrouble looks like.

America is a constant work in progress. What gives each new generation purpose is to take up the unfinished work of the last and carry it further - to speak out for what's right, to challenge an unjust status quo, and to imagine a better world.

John Lewis - 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, Member of Congress representing the people of Georgia for 33 years - not only assumed that responsibility, he made it his life's work. He loved this country so much that he risked his life and his blood so that it might live up to its promise. And through the decades, he not only gave all of himself to the cause of freedom and justice, but inspired generations that followed to try to live up to his example.

Considering his enormous impact on the history of this country, what always struck those who met John was his gentleness and humility. Born into modest means in the heart of the Jim Crow South, he understood that he was just one of a long line of heroes in the struggle for racial justice. Early on, he embraced the principles of nonviolent resistance and civil disobedience as the means to bring about real change in this country, understanding that such tactics had the power not only to change laws, but to change hearts and minds as well.

In so many ways, John's life was exceptional. But he never believed that what he did was more than any citizen of this country might do. He believed that in all of us, there exists the capacity for great courage, a longing to do what's right, a willingness to love all people, and to extend to them their God-given rights to dignity and respect. And it's because he saw the best in all of us that he will continue, even in his passing, to serve as a beacon in that long journey towards a more perfect union.

I first met John when I was in law school, and I told him then that he was one of my heroes. Years later, when I was elected a U.S. Senator, I told him that I stood on his shoulders. When I was elected President of the United States, I hugged him on the inauguration stand before I was sworn in and told him I was only there because of the sacrifices he made. And through all those years, he never stopped providing wisdom and encouragement to me and Michelle and our family. We will miss him dearly.

It's fitting that the last time John and I shared a public forum was at a virtual town hall with a gathering of young activists who were helping to lead this summer's demonstrations in the wake of George Floyd's death. Afterwards, I spoke to him privately, and he could not have been prouder of their efforts - of a new generation standing up for freedom and equality, a new generation intent on voting and protecting the right to vote, a new generation running for political office. I told him that all those young people - of every race, from every background and gender and sexual orientation - they were his children. They had learned from his example, even if they didn't know it. They had understood through him what American citizenship requires, even if they had heard of his courage only through history books.

Not many of us get to live to see our own legacy play out in such a meaningful, remarkable way. John Lewis did. And thanks to him, we now all have our marching orders - to keep believing in the possibility of remaking this country we love until it lives up to its full promise.

The Board returned to in-person meetings for the first time in months now that we are in phase three of reopening. We followed strict social distancing guidelines and required that every person in the room wear a mask. It wasn't ideal, but they were the actions that we all must take to continue to reduce cases of COVID-19.

We have come a long way and must continue to be diligent as we see spikes in other places. In fact, hours ago, I received some good news. While at the beginning of this pandemic, Fairfax County Health District had one of the highest percentages of the statewide positive cases, we now have one of the lowest. This is because of the care our residents are taking and the significant work of our Health Department.

I support Governor Northam’s request to further extend the moratorium on evictions. I have asked the Chief Judge at the Fairfax County General District Court to delay eviction actions in order to allow sufficient opportunity for state and county rental assistance to reach all residents who need it. This pandemic has caused considerable financial pain for our community, we are taking the necessary actions to provide support.

I am excited to announce my Board Matter requesting a full inventory of Confederate names of public places in Fairfax County, including: monuments, street names, Rec Centers, parks, county buildings, and other county properties. This is a first step in considering our history and the process of renaming. Thank you to Supervisor Walter Alcorn for working on this Board Matter with me. You can find more info below:

Fairfax County residents stand together with fellow Americans in support of the recent movement for racial justice, brought on by the horrific deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and others. This powerful call for equity has brought attention to Confederate monuments and place names throughout the country and the County, and the painful history they symbolize. Confederate monuments and place names were affirmations of white supremacy under the siren of southern history and tradition, and they go against the goal of a more just, unified county. They do not reflect our community’s values.

Therefore, I move that the Board request the Fairfax County History Commission to prepare a report listing a full inventory of Confederate street names, monuments and public places in Fairfax County and on Fairfax County-owned property. The report should include:

-A comprehensive list and history of places in Fairfax County named after individuals who held military or governmental responsibilities under the authority of the Confederate States of America between 1861-1865;
-Identification of the party responsible for renaming the street, monument and/or place;
-Implications (including legal, cost, and other) of removing Confederate names of public places in Fairfax County;
-Recommended guidelines with the input of other relevant County Boards and Commissions such as the Fairfax

County Park Authority and the Architectural Review Board for the renaming/replacement process of Confederate:

-Monuments
-Street Names
-Rec Centers & Parks
-Additional Public Places

-Input from the County Attorney’s office and other relevant county agencies on the renaming process of Confederate names of public places in the County.

-This should include coordination with other local governments for any existing removals or replacements, to include the Marr monument located on Fairfax county grounds.

We request this inventory be completed by the end of 2020. Once completed, the Board should immediately consider further community outreach and potential implementation options.

Hi Dalia, can you please get off Facebook and answer at least one of my emails or phone calls? I sent you quite a few on several issues and have not received one email or call back from your office. I also see you took the time to delete my posts here and cry for help here on Facebook but FAILED to respond back. Are you going to wait until I end up in a homeless shelter, or dead? If you see this message, can you please address the urgent issues related to domestic violence I forwarded to you?
Do we have a link in Spanish for how to apply for unemployment in Fairfax County that I can print out, Dalia Palchik?
That’s right!!! Don’t forget it!!! Dalia Palchik making moves, congratulations!! 🎉🎉🎉
