The Southern Poverty Law Center is for the first time labeling Florida-headquartered Moms for Liberty and 11 other right-wing "parents' rights" groups as extremist groups in its annual report, released Tuesday.

Moms for Liberty and the other organizations are being designated as "anti-government extremist groups," based on longstanding criteria, explained SPLC Intelligence Project Director Susan Corke. Corke said the grassroots conservative groups are part of a new front in the battle against inclusivity in schools, though they are drawing from ideas rooted in age-old white supremacy.

"[The movement] is primarily aimed at not wanting to include our hard history, topics of racism, and a very strong push against teaching anything having to do with LGBTQ topics in schools," Corke said. "We saw this as a very deliberate strategy to go to the local level."
