The Southern Poverty Law Center documented 784 active hate groups in the United States in 2014.

What We Do
We employ a three-pronged strategy to battle racial and social injustice:

Southern Poverty Law Center monitors hate groups and other extremists throughout the U.S. and exposes their activities to law enforcement agencies, the media and the public.

We know we don't achieve equality and justice through the courts and investigative reporting alone. The future of our great country lies in the hands of today's young people.

We use the courts and other forms of advocacy to win systematic reforms on behalf of victims of bigotry and discrimination.

Your gift will help win justice on behalf of those who have no other champion, expose and fight the hate that thrives in our country, and provide tolerance education materials free of charge lo schools across our nation.

Our Priorities
The Southern Poverty Law Center is dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of our society.

With a focus on Children's Rights we're fighting injustice all across the Deep South and beyond. 

Exposing the activities of the American radical right. Managed by the staff of the Intelligence Project.
