Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) is a non-profit organization that advocates for protecting religious freedom, free speech, and the sanctity of life. Founded in 1994, Alliance Defending Freedom has grown into a global legal advocacy organization with over 3,700 allied attorneys and over 10,000 cases in the US and worldwide.
ADF’s mission is to defend people’s fundamental rights to freely live out their faith, express their beliefs, and participate in public life without fear of persecution or discrimination. They achieve this through litigation, legislative advocacy, and public education campaigns.
ADF has played a pivotal role in many high-profile legal battles, such as defending the rights of bakers, florists, and photographers who declined to provide services for same-sex weddings. ADF also represented Masterpiece Cakeshop in the landmark Supreme Court case, Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. In this case, the court ruled in favor of the cake shop owner, who argued that creating a custom wedding cake for a same-sex wedding would violate his religious beliefs.
Apart from defending religious liberty, ADF also advocates for the sanctity of human life. They have successfully litigated cases on behalf of crisis pregnancy centers, often targeted by abortion advocates. ADF also supports the pro-life movement through education and advocacy, and they work to promote the value and dignity of human life in all areas of society.
In addition to their work in the US, Alliance Defending Freedom also has a global reach. They have successfully defended the rights of religious minorities in countries such as Pakistan, India, and Egypt. They have also worked to defend the right to free speech in European countries, such as Austria and Sweden, where hate speech laws threaten to silence opposing viewpoints.
