"Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble." - John Lewis in 2018

Civil rights activist and Georgia Congressman John Lewis was a founding member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, and helped organize the 1963 March on Washington with Martin Luther King Jr.  Lewis died in 2020 after a battle with cancer, but his words inspired Medtronic employees around the country to take action to help advance racial equity during Black History Month.

Throughout February, a number of Medtronic African Descent Network (ADN) hubs around the U.S. are embracing Lewis’ call to “make good trouble” and build a stronger future for employees and communities. The Medtronic ADN is a resource group open to all employees. Its goal is to raise awareness about racial equity issues and provide recruitment and retention tools to help develop and advance Black employees in their careers. ADN is intended to not only give employees a voice, but a pathway to success.
