Morris Dees: With Justice For All in a Changing America

2/15/2016; 59 minutes

Legendary civil rights advocate Morris Dees addresses how our commitment to justice for all will determine our nation's success in the next century as America becomes more diverse and economic disparity widens. Drawing upon past and current cases, he also examines the issue of hate crimes and the need to teach tolerance, love and respect for one another. Dees co-founded the Southern Poverty Law Center in 1971 to handle lawsuits involving civil rights violations, domestic terrorism, and hate-motivated crimes. Since then the Center has successfully battled and dismantled a series of hate groups, including the Aryan Nation, Ku Klux Klan, and has secured huge criminal, civil, and financial judgments against them.
