I am a 12 year old boy. For my "Mitzvah Project" for my Bar Mitzvah, I have chosen to raise money for the Southern Poverty Law Center. The late rapper Tupac Shakur had a tattoo that said "T.H.U.G. L.I.F.E." -- "The hate u give little infants f's everyone." This was the main theme of my bar mitzvah speech, which discussed how negative feelings can result in bad actions with horrible consequences -- and reminded us all that to combat hate, we need to give love and support. This organization can help combat the hate that we are seeing so much of today. I hope that with this campaign, I can play one very small part in trying to break the cycle of hate.
