Justice Climb 2015
Organized by: Isaac Sleadd
EVENT DATE Mar 21, 2015
Justice Climb started in 2014 as a collaboration between the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and a professor at the University of North Alabama (UNA) who wanted to fight for human rights in a new and challenging way. The answer? Scaling the world's highest peaks in order to combat hate and bigotry. That's what Justice Climb is all about. Fifty percent of donations go directly to the SPLC, so they can continue fighting extremism, hate, prejudice and poverty. The remaining 50% pays for the climb itself. Beyond fundraising, our stories, photos and monetary gifts will help the SPLC further its mission by spreading awareness.
Our pilot expedition, coming up in March, is a winter ascent of Mt. Elbert--the highest peak in Colorado and the Rocky Mountains. We really need your help funding this trip! Its success would set a precedent for even higher, grander peaks in America and around the world. Please join us, and together we can climb above hate.
