Location: Richmond, VA

Governor Bob McDonnell issued the following statement on the 104th anniversary of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

"Today I join the rest of the country in taking a moment to recognize the work of the NAACP as they mark their 104th anniversary. Their vision statement, 'to ensure a society in which all individuals have equal rights without discrimination based on race,' is one that we should all seek daily to make a reality. Our administration has worked closely with representatives from the NAACP on a number of issues including ensuring access to the ballot, putting in place the fastest and fairest civil rights restoration process in Virginia history, increasing opportunities for minority-owned businesses and ensuring that students have access to a world-class education regardless of their zip code. I have welcomed their voices and their passionate advocacy for a fairer and more just society. Today I offer Virginia's congratulations to the NAACP on 104 great years. I look forward to continuing to work with the NAACP as we strive to make Virginia a true Commonwealth of Opportunity, for every citizen in every community."
