Pam Horowitz

Pam Horowitz was one of the first lawyers hired by SPLC co-founders Morris Dees and Joe Levin, joining the organization in 1974. During her time at the Southern Poverty Law Center, she successfully argued an historic sex discrimination case before the U.S. Supreme Court. Horowitz practiced law for 30 years with a Washington DC firm. She also worked in partnership with her late husband, Julian Bond, who served as the SPLC’s first president, on multiple public, private and academic projects – including an annual civil rights tour of the South and projects involving the SPLC.
