Earlier this month, GuideStar, which provides information about charities, decided to remove flags it’d put on some nonprofits on its site.

The labels said the organization was “flagged as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.”

These labels proved controversial and led to some protests. On Wednesday, the group Liberty Council, which was one of the nonprofits flagged, sued GuideStar over it.

With me to talk about this situation is Eden Stiffman, a staff writer for The Chronicle of Philanthropy who’s written about this.
