The alt-right, or alternative right, is a loosely defined group of people
with far-right ideologies who reject mainstream conservatism in favor of
white nationalism, principally in the United States

The Southern Poverty Law Center is dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice
 for the most vulnerable members of our society. Using litigation, education, and other forms of advocacy,
the SPLC works toward the day when the ideals of equal justice and equal opportunity will become a reality.
