The Southern Poverty Law Center is an organization that is dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of our society. It was founded by two southern lawyers Morris Dees and Joe Levin, and Civil Rights leader Julian Bond who served as the organization’s first president and was president-emeritus at the time of his death in 2015. The SPLC uses litigation, education, and other forms of advocacy as a methods as they work toward the day when the ideals of equal justice and equal opportunity will be realized.
