Vets Fight Hate
Racism and discrimination are haunting America’s conscience. Over the past year, we have seen racism and hate against immigrants on the rise in our country, but few of the “haters” realize that approximately 11% of all U.S. veterans come from an immigrant background. Veterans are one of the most respected and honored groups of people in the country, which is why Southern Poverty Law Center partnered with Vets Fight Hate, a campaign to urge people to think twice before judging people whose stories they don’t know.
Through Vets Fight Hate, immigrant veterans are responding to hateful tweets by sending an inclusive message of peace and unity to positively impact our fractured society, infiltrate pop culture and fight back against those spreading hatred.
