"The Center's Intelligence Project is dedicated to monitoring hate groups and extremist activity in the U.S.

It also publishes the Intelligence Report, a quarterly magazine updating law enforcement, the media, and the public on the activity it investigates.

The Project has also established law enforcement training to help officers identify and respond to hate crimes.

Originally called Klanwatch, the Intelligence Project was created in 1981 in response to an incident two years earlier. During a peaceful march in Decatur, Alabama, Klan members attacked civil rights activists. Curtis Robinson, a black man, shot a Klansman in self-defense. When Robinson was convicted of assault with intent to murder by an all-white jury, the Center appealed his conviction and brought its first civil suit against the Klan.

During the suit, Center investigators discovered evidence suggesting a resurgence of Klan activity. Klanwatch was established to take action against the Klan and the cross burnings, beatings, shootings, and other violence that authorities largely ignored.

Though the Project's original purpose was to gather information about the Klan, it evolved into much more. Today, the Project monitors hate crimes and domestic hate groups including neo-Nazi, racist Skinheads, Christian Identity adherents, black separatists, and extremist militias making it an acknowledged expert on the wide spectrum of U.S. hate activity.

Because the most violent hate groups monitored by the Intelligence Project are no longer associated with the Klan, the program's name changed in 1998 from Klanwatch to the Intelligence Project."

and about the center:
"The Southern Poverty Law Center was founded in 1971 as a small civil rights law firm. Today, the Center is internationally known for its tolerance education programs, its legal victories against white supremacists and its tracking of hate groups.

Located in Montgomery, Alabama the birthplace of the Civil Rights Movement the Center was founded by Morris Dees and Joe Levin, two local lawyers who shared a commitment to racial equality. Its first president was civil rights activist Julian Bond."
