An organization of Christian lawyers and law students, Alliance Defending Freedom, seeks to eliminate religious discrimination by advocating for people, policies, and programs that respect the truth of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Founded in 1994 by Dr. James Dobson, we now have over 2200 staff and volunteer attorneys primarily located in North America but active worldwide.
Alliance Defending Freedom promotes a world where religious freedom is respected, and everyone knows they can live out their faith without fear at work, school, or the community where they live.
Through our respect project, we seek to educate the public about the importance of religious freedom through mass media, public events, social media campaigns, and grassroots efforts. This will help to create awareness of the respect owed to people who believe marriage is between one man and one woman.
Also, the organization has participatory status with the European Union’s Agency for Federal Rights. Additionally, ADF frequently interacts with the organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. It is also one of the most coveted and successful advocates of the United States Supreme Court.
We tell the truth about marriage and family. We argue for policies protecting our client’s right to live out their faith freely. We offer free legal assistance to people who have suffered due to government policies and laws violating their consciences or religion. We also engage in advocacy on various levels, including litigation before the Supreme Court and legislation in Congress.
Alliance Defending Freedom has won 11 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court – a record unmatched by any other organization; over 25 cases at the U.S. District Court level and several victories in state courts. In addition, the organization has worked for pro-family policies on numerous governmental levels, including the President’s Committee on Religious Liberty, has trained thousands of lawyers and law students, and has educated millions about religious liberty issues.
In conclusion, Alliance Defending Freedom is a unique Christian legal organization working to eliminate religious discrimination and promote fairness, justice, and respect for all. Our goal is to help people live out their faith by providing legal assistance with personal and professional challenges. Click here to learn more.
