Google any and all of the names above, or click on the links to the film or to the Center.
I need to rewrite my will to make it simpler to administer. (I've learned a few things about wills in the past year. My will is a bit of a nightmare right now. I'm OK, my health's fine, but I don't want to leave a mess for my executor.) In the new will, I'm going to bequeath 5% of my assets to the Center. You might want to, as well. Just a thought.
Fun fact from the night: I saw a photo of a Klan leader that the Center successfully sued. (The KKK and other hate and 'patriot' groups despise the SPLC because they take their money, their land and their stuff and then give the assets to the victim's families.) On the side of the Klansman's head were tattooed two words: Fuck SPLC. Donate as you can.
