Day Two: Southern Poverty Law Center

splc_logoFor 45 years, the SPLC has been a powerful legal and educational voice for civil rights. Their specific program focuses include children’s rights, immigrant justice, LGBT rights, economic justice, criminal justice reform, and monitoring hate and extremist groups.

SPLC has tracked the instances of reported hate crimes, not just over the past few days, but since their inception. What’s changed is the rate at which they’ve occurred. From Wednesday to Friday, they logged more than 200 incidents. Usually, 200 to 250 hate crimes are reported in six months. These occurred in two days. Two. Days.
