STATEMENT OF ATTORNEY GENERAL HERRING

RICHMOND(August 16, 2017)-Attorney General Mark R. Herring issued the following statement regarding Confederate monuments in the Commonwealth:

 

"I agree with Gov. McAuliffe and Lt. Gov. Northam that this is the time for each community to engage in an inclusive conversation on the future of its Confederate statues and monuments. In my opinion, these statues should be relocated to museums or removed. Gov. McAuliffe said it well: these symbols are a barrier to progress, inclusion, and equality in Virginia."
