Gov. McAuliffe, speaking yesterday at the Brookings Institute: “Let us be clear, this isn’t a debate about monuments. These folks weren’t just protesting in the name of preserving southern heritage; they want to maintain inequality in everything they do, from criminal justice to education to housing, and they want to elevate racism to the highest forum.”

“Why judge & perpetually punish those who got lost along the way? Show me someone who says they’ve never made mistake – I’ll show you a liar.”

“When people return to their communities, we must support them so they can make make the most of their second chance.”

“It’s past time for criminal justice reform – we need a criminal justice revolution.”
