Some familiar Democratic names, such as Congressman John Lewis, D-Ga., are scheduled to be on hand for the "For The People Rally" in Gainesville on Sunday, Sept. 21. The former Civil Rights activist and longtime lawmaker will be the afternoon's keynote speaker. Billed as  a day that "celebrates the values of the Democratic Party," the gathering will be held from 1 pm to 5 pm. All ages are invited.

Lewis will be joined by U.S. Senate Democratic Party nominee Jim Martin, Public Service Commission candidate Jim Powell and Congressional Candidates Jeff Scott, Bobby Saxon, Bill Jones and Doug Heckman.

Former State Legislator and Congressional Candidate Wyc Orr will be the evening's host of the event.
