The SPLC employs a three-pronged strategy to battle racial and social justice: (1) Fighting Hate, (2) Teaching Tolerance, and (3) Seek Justice (by advocacy for systemic reforms on behalf of victims of bigotry and discrimination). Come out and learn from this important speaker. Seating is limited to room capacity.
