Stand Against Attacks on Free Speech!

Your gift right now will help defend free speech in crucial cases where your right to free speech is at risk.

No one should be forced to say something they don’t believe—but not according to the State of Colorado.

Graphic artist Lorie Smith creates unique and beautiful custom designs for her clients. Every word she writes, every graphic she designs, and every website she crafts communicates a message.

But a Colorado law threatens Lorie and her ability to create freely—and chooses which Americans have freedom and which ones don’t.

Lorie serves everyone. She just can’t express all messages. But because of the law, Lorie could be punished simply for creating custom websites celebrating weddings consistent with her religious beliefs.

Whether she takes on a project always turns on what the message is, not who is requesting it.

The violation of her First Amendment rights couldn’t be clearer. So, Lorie challenged the law in court.

After a federal appeals court issued an alarming decision against Lorie, ruling that the state can force her to create custom websites that celebrate messages that violate her beliefs, her case was argued last December before the U.S. Supreme Court!

A win for Lorie is a win for everyone. You don’t lose your freedom of speech when you choose to make a living. A government that can coerce and silence Lorie and those like her because it doesn’t like her beliefs could do the same to you.

The need to defend free speech is only growing.

Cases like Lorie's that go all the way to our nation’s highest court can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. And Alliance Defending Freedom doesn’t charge our clients a dime to defend them in court. We depend upon the generosity of people like you.

Will you give $25, $50, $75, $100 or more today and help keep us in the courtroom defending Americans like Lorie?
