STATEMENT: Removal of Robert E. Lee Statue from Monument Avenue, Richmond

“This morning, the Virginia Supreme Court ruled in favor of the removal of the Confederate General Robert E. Lee statue from state property on Monument Avenue in Richmond. 

“The removal of the statue, along with many others across the Commonwealth, signifies a new era of inclusion—where students will learn the whole history of Virginia and the United States, and we lift up all voices from our past and present.

“As Senate Democrats look toward our future, we are focused on continuing to build a Virginian legacy that embodies who we are and who we hope to become.”
