Impact Report: Free Speech Edition

A Message from Kristen Waggoner

From all of us at Alliance Defending Freedom, thank you.

We have so much to be thankful for as we begin the New Year. And we’re especially thankful for you, our Ministry Friends, who are the lifeline for the work we do.

Our CEO, President, and General Counsel, Kristen Waggoner, has a special message of gratitude for you.

God has blessed our ministry continuously over the years, and 2022 was no exception. Though He could choose to do it through some miracle, we believe He instead delights in doing it through His “hands and feet,” through all of you, our faithful friends in freedom.

This year alone, together we've won…

  • for life at the Supreme Court.
  • for Christian schools standing up to gender ideology from the Biden administration.
  • for teachers and professors to speak freely.
  • for religious freedom and free speech not only in our nation, but also across the globe.

That's just a small sample, but all of it is because of God’s grace and the generosity of our Ministry Friends.

Thank you for making the choice to help defend religious liberty, the sanctity of life, parental rights, free speech, and marriage and family this year.

Your gift will help shape our nation and culture in ways that honor God and protect people.

As the year 2023 begins, we again say thank you. May God bless you and your families in the year ahead!

Supreme Court

ADF’s mission is to keep the doors open for the Gospel by defending our first amendment freedoms. In 2022, we saw the Lord’s hand of blessing in every area of our work… below we recount the victories of the year.

The amount of work keeps rising. As you read through the rest of this free speech report, we hope you will consider redoubling your stand for freedom today.

ADF at the US Supreme Court

A Win for Life; More Critical Cases Pending

Supreme Court

Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization

Bottom line: In a victory for women and children, the Supreme Court overturned its 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that wrongly found a constitutional right to abortion. Find out more here.

Lorie Smith

303 Creative v. Elenis

ADF is representing graphic artist Lorie Smith in a landmark free-speech case. ADF CEO, President, and General Counsel Kristen Waggoner argued Lorie’s case before the Supreme Court on December 5, 2022.

The Court is expected to issue a decision in Lorie’s case in 2023.

At stake: The ability to create freely—to prevent the government from requiring Americans to speak messages that contradict their core beliefs.

South Carolina State House

Kerr v. Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood and one of its clients sued South Carolina after the state’s Department of Health and Human Services labeled abortion clinics unqualified to provide family planning services through Medicaid.

ADF is waiting to hear if the Supreme Court will grant review. The Court is likely to hold this case until reaching a decision in a similar case, Health and Hospital Corporation of Marion County v. Talevski.

At stake: The right of states to direct taxpayer funds to life-affirming medical providers.
