“We will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream,” said Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
As a civil rights organization working to combat hate and extremism, the Southern Poverty Law Center celebrates King’s vision, but we are also aware that his dream is under fierce attack. The current administration is seeking to reverse the gains of the civil rights movement, and this past year, we witnessed a rise in the white supremacist movement.
We encourage compassionate people everywhere to continue speaking out against hate, and to challenge policies that demean and divide.
