Alliance Defending Freedom, An Organization Of The People

Alliance Defending Freedom is an organization that defends religious and political freedom across the globe. The group has received several accolades and awards for protecting religious rights. This organization represents a different way of thinking about the law, emphasizing individual liberty, religion, life, and the family.

Alliance Defending Freedom has had remarkable success in defending life at home and abroad by providing free legal representation to victims of abortion. The group has also helped protect individuals from employment discrimination based on their faith or conscience before Congress and the courts.

In a case before the U.S. Supreme Court, ADF attorneys are defending the free speech rights of a high school student and faculty adviser who wanted to give out Bible verses on campus but were stopped by school officials. The case involves the speech of students and the school-sponsored distribution of literature at a public university, which the First Amendment protects.

In another case, Alliance Defending Freedom represented a group of students disciplined by their teacher for refusing to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance. The complaint, filed with the U.S. Department of Education, states that the teacher’s actions violate federal law and constitutional protections because the students were denied their fundamental rights to free speech and religious liberty.

Alliance Defending Freedom has also represented many children abused or otherwise denied access to necessities like education or medical care at government-run facilities. The group has also won legal battles to protect religious liberty in the military.

The organization is a true flagship in religious freedom and is known for being a stickler for the law. Alliance Defending Freedom has been involved with cases in which they have represented people who had suffered religious discrimination due to state action, or they have acted to defend people who were being regulated by state action that pertained to their religion.
