SPLC: Seeking justice- fighting hate- teaching tolerance
Seeking justice – fighting hate – teaching tolerance
August 4, 2008
Viva la Causa! premieres in September
SPLC’s Teaching Tolerance program will unveil a new documentary film and teaching kit, Viva la Causa!, that focuses on one of the seminal events in the march for human rights — the grape strike and boycott led by César Chávez and Dolores Huerta in the 1960s. Viva la Causa! will be delivered free to classrooms this fall and will help counter the burgeoning anti-Latino sentiment in our country by teaching millions of schoolchildren that they can choose respect over bigotry.

Holocaust denier interviewed in new video
Max Blumenthal, a writer for The Nation, teamed up with the Southern Poverty Law Center to produce a video about author David Irving, an infamous British Holocaust denier who has been speaking across the U.S. after his release from an Austrian prison. During the interview, Irving strongly defends Hitler and blames Jews for their own persecution.
SPLC represents victim of racial profiling
Victor Marquez was traveling through Alabama to his hometown in Mexico to pay for a house when a police officer pulled him over and confiscated almost $20,000. The officer claimed, without any evidence, that it was drug money.
We’re representing Marquez as he tries to recover the money he saved from harvesting beans in South Florida for almost a decade. "The Latino community should not have to worry that their legitimately earned wages and dreams of building a home and better life can be taken away on a whim," said Mary Bauer, director of SPLC’s Immigrant Justice Project.

Reducing dropout rates in Alabama
As we did in Mississippi, we’re working to decrease the high student and teacher dropout rates in Alabama with our new report, Effective Discipline for Student Success: Reducing Student and Teacher Dropout Rates in Alabama. Schools that have implemented the methods have seen marked improvement in student behavior. We’re working to curb the number of students being pushed into the juvenile justice system, or a path known as the "school-to-prison pipeline."
