Tell Virginia to Take Robert E. Lee Out of the U.S. Capitol

100 statues represent 50 states in the U.S. Capitol, two provided by each state. One of Virginia's is Robert E. Lee.

Please sign this petition to the Virginia legislature and governor:

We implore you to immediately remove the statue of Robert E. Lee from the U.S. Capitol, and to permit local governments in Virginia to take down statues as they see fit.
