Paying Respects to Julian Bond: Educator, Activist, Politician

Julian Bond

Paying Our Respects

by UnitedCoR’s Executive Director

UnitedCoR recently learned of Orlando Coalition of Reason’s loss of Julian Bond—a Humanist who was an activist for civil rights and LGBTQ issues. The Southern Poverty Law Center co-founder Morris Dees said, “With Julian’s passing, the country has lost one of its most passionate and eloquent voices for the cause of justice. He advocated not just for African-Americans, but for every group, indeed every person subject to oppression and discrimination, because he recognized the common humanity in us all.”

“Good things don’t come to those who wait.  They come to those who agitate”

-Julian Bond
