    Southern Poverty Law Center fires co-founder Morris Dees

    The Southern Poverty Law Center fired Morris Dees, the nonprofit civil rights organization's co-founder and former chief litigator.

    SPLC President Richard Cohen said in a statement Dees' dismissal over his misconduct was effective on Wednesday, March 13. When pressed for details on what led to the termination, the organization declined to elaborate.

    The SPLC is saying something about needing to bring in an outside agency to assess their workplace environment

    The Southern Poverty Law Center has fired its co-founder, Morris Dees, amidst reports that the civil rights nonprofit has been facing gender and race complaints within the workplace.

    According to the Los Angeles Times, SPLC announced Thursday that Dees was dismissed over unnamed misconduct, after having led the organization for almost half a century. SPLC leadership did not disclose a specific reason for his dismissal, but told staff in an internal email that “although he made unparalleled contributions to our work, no one’s contributions can excuse that person’s inappropriate conduct.”

    The Times reported that the watchdog organization has been struggling with complaints from staff of workplace mistreatment of women and people of color. However, it was not clear if the complaints were connected to Dees’s firing.

    Also on Thursday, before news broke that of Dees’s dismissal, about two dozen employees signed and sent a letter to management saying they were concerned that internal “allegations of mistreatment, sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism threaten the moral authority of this organization and our integrity along with it.”

    The letter came after a respected black attorney at the organization had resigned criticizing the organization’s work culture in an email announcing her departure.

    “As a woman of color, the experiences of staff of color and female staff have been particularly important to me … and we recognize that there is more work to do in the legal department and across the organization to ensure that SPLC is a place where everyone is heard and respected and where the values we are committed to pursuing externally are also being practiced internally,” she wrote, according to the Times.

    So Dees was a sexist and racist! After lecturing the rest of us on these very issues... More hypocrisy from our moral betters...

    Blatant double-standard hypocrisy. Ever the bane of smug, self-righteous Pharisees.
