Congratulations to the good people of Alabama for electing Doug Jones this week! We'd also like to applaud an Alabama organization doing good for the entire country - every day.
Alabama's Southern Poverty Law Center reports on hate in the White House, immigration issues, LGBTQ topics, and more. They created the SPLC Hate Tracker. It detects and reports on far-right Twitter extremists - from conspiratorial mainstream conservatives to white supremacists: People who regularly use Twitter as a tool for media subversion, ideological indoctrination and propaganda dissemination.
They also sponsor the Hatewatch program, a blog that monitors and exposes the activities of the American radical right, as well as Vets Fight Hate, a campaign of immigrant veterans responding to hateful tweets by sending an inclusive message of peace and unity. Visit splcenter.org to learn more about these programs and how proud Alabamians are fighting hate every day.
