Covington Joins NAACP Push to Scrap Confederate Names From Virginia Schools

August 16, 2019, The National Law Journal

Jason Raofield is quoted in the National Law Journal regarding the firm’s representation of the Hanover County Unit of the NAACP in a case involving a Richmond high school’s use of a Confederate nickname. Mr. Raofield says, “Hanover County is spending taxpayer funds on litigation to preserve its ability to force African-American students to literally label themselves ‘Rebels’ and ‘Confederates’ in order to participate in school activities and sports. Let that sink in. This is not a case about ‘heritage,’ it is a case about protecting children.”
