Toward a Just and Equitable Future

A policy platform to meet the challenges of 2024 and beyond

The SPLC Action Fund, the 501(c)4 affiliate organization to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), released its policy platform, Toward a Just and Equitable Future, ahead of one of the most consequential elections of our time. This action guide outlines recommendations for candidates and policymakers at all levels of government, federal, state and local levels

This election presents a pivotal moment for the U.S., affecting major national issues and mirroring the SPLC’s mission. Despite progress, the U.S. faces challenges in democracy, justice and equality.
