“This past Sunday we lost Mr. Julian Bond, a fearless civil rights icon whose life’s work was to make our country a better place. From years of activism, to his leadership posts in the Georgia General Assembly, at the NAACP and Southern Poverty Law Center, Mr. Bond dedicated his life to ensuring equality, justice and fairness for all.
