The Civil Rights Memorial Center is one of the public faces of the Southern Poverty Law Center and avows all of the values of the SPLC. The Civil Rights Memorial, designed by the same artist who designed the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington DC, displays the names of those who died in the modern Civil Rights Movement. Inside the center, these individuals are further honored by plaques that describe their lives and the circumstances of their deaths. Also inside the center, the visitor has the opportunity to pledge becoming a partner in the never-ending effort to extend civil rights to all, and to see his or her name "rain" down the Wall of Tolerance along with the names of those partners who came before.
