Last fall, four Park Students met with The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) co-founder Morris Dees, attended an SPLC workshop, and witnessed the Wall of Tolerance unveiling in historic Montgomery, Alabama with the late J. Diann Sams. Those four students were: Alyson Buck '06, OCLD; Lonna Dawson '07, OCLD; Christopher DeAngelis 06, IMC; and Ashley Fazio '05, OCLD.

Just this month, the SPLC mentions the historic visit by Park students in their national newsletter. To read more, please click on the link below:

The SPLC was founded in 1971 as a small civil rights law firm. Today, the Center is internationally known for its tolerance education programs and its legal victories against hate groups.
