“We’ve truly lost one of the great champions of my lifetime. Julian Bond fought every step of the way to bring justice to the most vulnerable and disadvantaged among us. Bond spent his early days as an important political organizer, was a member of the Georgia legislature, was the first president of the Southern Poverty Law Center, and had a tenure as the chairman of the N.A.A.C.P. Bond’s mission was equality and his vision and energy was relentless; it is our duty to continue his life’s work. His influence will be felt for generations to come.”
