SPLC releases new edition of Ten Ways to Fight Hate guide

Ten Ways to Fight Hate, which was updated in the wake of the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, sets out 10 principles for taking action, including how to respond to a hate rally that has targeted your town.

Sign our petition calling for President Trump to take responsibility for the hate he's unleashed

President Trump's campaign and presidency have energized the white supremacist movement in unprecedented ways. We saw it in his racist and xenophobic campaign, and we saw it in the deadly gathering of white supremacists in Charlottesville this weekend. Tell President Trump to take responsibility for the hate he's unleashed by signing our petition today.



SPLC places ads in major newspapers across the country promoting our Ten Ways guide

In response to the escalating tensions over Charlottesville and President Trump’s failure to provide moral leadership, today we've placed advertisements in major newspapers across the country to promote Ten Ways to Fight Hate. Advertisements were published in The New York Times, Washington Post, Atlanta-Journal Constitution, Houston Chronicle, San Francisco Chronicle, Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune.



SPLC's Whose Heritage maps public symbols of the Confederacy

Following the Charleston massacre in 2015, we released "Whose Heritage?" as part of an effort to catalog and map Confederate place names and other symbols in public spaces, both in the South and across the nation. In the last week it has been extensively cited in the media. Help us make it as comprehensive as possible by using this form to report public symbols of the Confederacy that we might have missed.
