Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) is a renowned legal
that stands as a stalwart advocate for religious freedom, free speech, marriage and
family, parental rights, and the sanctity of life. Founded in 1994 by Christian
community leaders, ADF has emerged as the world’s largest legal organization
dedicated to protecting these fundamental values. 

Through its relentless efforts, ADF has successfully litigated 14 cases before the Supreme
Court since 2011, securing victories that uphold religious liberty, marriage
and family, parental rights, free speech, and the sanctity of human life. One
such landmark case was Masterpiece Cakeshop vs. Colorado Civil Rights
Commission, which garnered nationwide attention. The case revolved around a
baker who refused to create a cake for a same-sex wedding due to his religious
beliefs. The Supreme Court’s 7-2 ruling in favor of the baker emphasized the
impermissible hostility shown by the state of Colorado towards his faith. 

ADF’s Center for Academic Freedom (CAF) plays a vital role in protecting students’ free speech rights on
college campuses. CAF focuses on combating unconstitutional speech codes and
preventing the abuse of so-called “non-discrimination policies” that
restrict student groups’ freedom of association. With an impressive track
record of over 435 campus victories and a 91% win rate in direct litigation,
CAF has successfully challenged anti-free speech zones and safeguarded
students’ constitutional rights. 

Central to ADF’s core beliefs is the sanctity of life. The organization has been involved in
several groundbreaking cases defending the rights of pro-life advocates and
protecting the terminally ill and disabled from assisted suicide. ADF’s work
extends beyond the United States, as its international branch, Alliance
Defending Freedom International (ADFI), advocates for religious freedom and
defends Christians and religious minorities worldwide. 

Furthermore, Alliance Defending Freedom is committed to upholding parental rights and
ensuring that children are not treated as mere creatures of the state. They
advocate for laws that provide accountability, choice, and transparency to
parents, emphasizing that children primarily belong to their families. 

With its extensive legal expertise and unwavering dedication, Alliance Defending Freedom continues
to make significant strides in safeguarding religious freedom, preserving
traditional values, and protecting the fundamental rights of individuals and
families. Their work serves as an inspiration to those who cherish the
principles of liberty and justice for all. Read this article for
