A Discussion with Richard Cohen: Hate Incidents–Implications for Leaders

February 7, 2018 | 2/6/18 12:10 pm - 2/6/18 1:15 pm

Richard Cohen, President of the Southern Poverty Law Center, served previously as legal director for the center. In 1999, he was a finalist for the national Trial Lawyer of the Year Award for his work on Macedonia Baptist Church v. Christian Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, a lawsuit that ended with a record $37.8 million judgment against a Klan group for its role in the burning of a South Carolina church. The media has quoted him recently on the advice that the center developed for dealing with hate crimes. Mr. Cohen has a bachelor’s degree from Columbia University and a law degree from the University of Virginia.
