Southern Poverty Law Center Founder Morris Dees and SPLC President Richard Cohen will host a 30-minute live audio webcast this Friday at 2 p.m. Eastern on the trial against the Imperial Klans of America. Morris and the SPLC legal team just won a $2.5 million verdict against Ron Edwards, leader of the Imperial Klans of America, and one of his chief lieutenants for the brutal beating of a Kentucky teenager.

Morris and Richard will discuss the challenges of holding hate groups and their leaders accountable for the actions of their members and the effect our trial strategy has had on the hate movement. They'll also discuss how the election of Barack Obama and the current economy are creating a perfect storm for white supremacist groups.
