Levie, left, with other award recipients

Al Levie is a social studies teacher and community activist in Wisconsin. He is also one brave and principled guy: When Rep. Paul Ryan tried to give him a Congressional certificate honoring a Martin Luther King humanitarian award Levie had just won, Levie refused it, calling out Ryan out as "a lackey for the 1%" whose policies are an insult to King's stands for civil rights and economic justice. Bravo. Video.
