Organization
    (1971- )
    Born in Montgomery, Alabama
    Organization dedicated to fighting racist/extremist organizations through the courts
    Most well known for suing racist organizations and bankrupting them
    Founded by Morris Dees (pictured)
    In 2000, Harper's and The Nation magazines exposed them as a primarily public relations organization that spends twice as much on fundraising as they do on legal affairs.
    They brag about how much money they win for their clients in court cases but don't mention they rarely get the full amount. Example: they won 7 million against the United Klans of America but only got a few hundred thousand when the Klan sold its headquarters to pay the debt.
    The Montgomery Advertiser was nominated for a Pulitzer for a series it ran on it, among other things it had no black lawyers and several former black employees said it was run like a plantation.
    In 2008 it had an endowment of over 156 million.
    In their newsletter they smear any remotely conservative organization (including a Catholic organization dedicated to using the Latin mass!) with the title 'hate group.'
    They put the United Klans of America and Tom Metzger's White Aryan Resistance out of business.
    In 1983, their offices were firebombed by the KKK.
    They have produced a program called 'Teaching Tolerance' for use in schools.
    They have produced two Oscar winning documentaries and five others that were nominated.
    They don't keep the money they win in court, but give it to victims of racism.
