Bond was former chairman of the NAACP, first president of the Southern Poverty Law Center and helped found the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, a key organization in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s.

In a statement, CAIR National Executive Director said:

"Americans of all races and faiths view Julian Bond as a true champion for justice and equality. His life and legacy will serve as an example of principled courage in the face of injustice and intolerance for generations to come."

CAIR Board Chair Roula Allouch said:

"We offer condolences to Julian Bond's loved ones, and to the entire nation, on the loss of a voice for those of all beliefs and backgrounds who suffer discrimination based on the intolerance born of ignorance."

CAIR is America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
