BENEFITING: Southern Poverty Law Center, Inc.
Hi all, It seems that almost every day we wake up to news about a black person being hurt/killed by or in the custody of white law enforcement. The world feels like a crazy place - how can this keep happening?! To support equality and work to eradicate hate, FFG will support the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) this month. The SPLC is dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of our society. Using litigation, education, and other forms of advocacy, the Center works toward the day when the ideals of equal justice and equal opportunity will be a reality. They employ a three-pronged strategy to battle racial and social injustice: 1. Track hate groups and domestic terrorists across America, and launch lawsuits to destroy networks of radical extremists 2. Use the courts and other forms of advocacy to win systemic reforms on behalf of victims of bigotry and discrimination 3. Provide educators with free resources that teach school children to reject hate, embrace diversity and respect differences SPLC: fighting hate, teaching tolerance, seeking justice.
