What is NAME up to?

The National Association for Multicultural Education, along with the rest of the nation, mourns the passing of civil rights champion Julian Bond.  He was 75 years old and died on Saturday, August 15 in Florida.

Julian originally came to prominence during the 1960’s where he demonstrated his leadership by serving as co-founder of the Student NonViolent Coordinating Committee.  He was a central figure throughout the decade as a champion of human and civil rights.  In the 1970’s, he was co-founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center, along with Morris Dees and Joe Levin.  He served in public office as a legislator in the state of Georgia.  From 1998-2010, Julian served as the President of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.  

Julian Bond served as a role model for all who dedicate their lives to promoting equity, diversity, and social justice. 

Francisco Rios, President
National Association for Multicultural Education
