Southern Poverty Law Center’s mission is to reduce prejudice, improve intergroup relations, and support equitable school experiences for children in the United States. The organization believes that schools must educate all students for full participation in a diverse democracy. SPLC uses litigation, education, and other forms of advocacy to work towards the day when the ideals of equal justice and equal opportunity will be a reality.
A 2018 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported SPLC’s Teaching Tolerance program. The program aims to foster equitable, inclusive learning environments and support tolerance education by providing award-winning, anti-bias materials to teachers and schools nationwide. SPLC is among the United States’s leading providers of anti-bias resources, both in print and online.
