Candidates with extremist views profiled
The SPLC Task Force on Hate in the Public Sphere has released profiles of 15 political candidates -- including Democrats and Republicans -- whose beliefs are linked with hate groups and racial, ethnic, religious, anti-gay and antigovernment extremism, or who promote extremist propaganda.

Bizarre attack on SPLC's Mix It Up at Lunch Day
Religious-right extremists have launched a false attack against the SPLC's anti-bias school program saying that it is an attempt to indoctrinate young people into the "homosexual lifestyle." Watch Teaching Tolerance Director Maureen Costello on CNN discussing the allegation.

SPLC in court seeking millions in lost wages
SPLC lawyers are fighting in federal court to help domestic farmworkers and foreign guestworkers recover millions of dollars in wages they were never paid after performing backbreaking work. We're seeking to reverse a lower court's decision that took an estimated $100 million out of the pockets of farmworkers.

Morris Dees remembers George McGovern
Senator George McGovern was a longtime champion of the SPLC and a man of principle and compassion. Morris Dees remembers the Senator and their four-decade friendship.
