Dees: Fight For Equality Continues

Morris Dees, a lawyer and major foe of the Aryan Nations in the North Idaho hate group's heyday, said Tuesday at the University of Idaho that the work of fighting for equality continues on fronts such as U.S. immigration, health care and public education. "There are millions among us who find neither opportunity nor justice," Dees said, speaking to a full ballroom inside the Student Union Building on the university campus.

Dees said the "march for justice" continues on numerous issues/David Cole, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here. (Lewiston Tribune photo, of Morris Dees)
