Fighting Hate

We monitor hate groups and other extremists throughout the United States and expose their activities to the public, the media and law enforcement.

The SPLC is the premier U.S. non-profit organization monitoring the activities of domestic hate groups and other extremists – including the Ku Klux Klan, the neo-Nazi movement, neo-Confederates, racist skinheads, black separatists, antigovernment militias, Christian Identity adherents and others.

We’re currently tracking more than 1,600 extremist groups operating across the country. We publish investigative reports, train law enforcement officers and share key intelligence, and offer expert analysis to the media and public.

There are currently 954 hate groups operating in the United States.

In the years since the Oklahoma City federal building was bombed in 1995, 45 law enforcement officers have been murdered by domestic extremists connected to or influenced by groups or ideologies monitored by the SPLC.

Law enforcement professionals are more likely to encounter dangerous extremists than virtually any other segment of American society — and those confrontations are, tragically, sometimes fatal.
