The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has listed the Republican-connected "parents' rights" group Moms for Liberty as an "anti-government extremist" organization in its latest Year in Hate & Extremism report.

In a statement accompanying the report's release, a spokesperson for the extremism watchdog group wrote that Moms for Liberty was the most prominent of 12 extremist "anti-student inclusion groups" mobilizing to "attack public education, ban books, and remove any curriculum that contains discussions of race, discrimination, and LGBTQ+ identities".

The listing puts the group – whose members and endorsees now sit on school boards around the country – in the same category as anti-government organizations like the Oath Keepers, the Three Percenters and the John Birch Society.
