The SPLC was founded in 1971 to ensure that the promise of the civil rights movement became a reality for all.

Over time, our litigation and advocacy work has grown to encompass six issue areas: Children’s Rights, Immigrant Justice, LGBTQ Rights, Economic Justice, Criminal Justice Reform and Voting Rights.

For five decades, we’ve won landmark cases that brought systemic reforms to the Deep South and beyond.

We’ve toppled remnants of Jim Crow segregation and destroyed violent white supremacist groups. We’ve shattered barriers to equality for women, vulnerable children, the LGBTQ community and the disabled. We’ve protected migrant workers and immigrants from abuse, ensured the humane treatment of prisoners, reformed juvenile justice practices, and more.
