ADF Center for Legislative Advocacy
Working in Congress and state legislatures across the country to defend your right to freely live out your faith
ADF’s Center for Legislative Advocacy is a vital part of ADF’s fight to secure Generational Wins that change law and culture. The Center for Legislative Advocacy complements ADF’s efforts in the courtroom by supporting laws that protect religious freedom, free speech, the sanctity of life, marriage and family, and parental rights.
Our team provides legal analysis, valuable resources, and expert testimony on our nation’s most pressing First Amendment legislation, both in Congress and in state legislatures across the country.

How the Center for Legislative Advocacy Is Securing Generational Wins in the Legislature
Defending the right to life
We work to prevent taxpayer funding of abortion, protect babies born alive after attempted abortion, and stop abortions that target a child because of race, sex, or disability. We also oppose the legalization of so-called “assisted suicide.”
Preserving religious freedom for everyone
Our laws must safeguard the right to live and work according to one’s faith. This includes legislation that ensures churches and religious organizations remain free to serve their communities and protects rights of conscience.
Ensuring that all can speak freely
We advocate for laws that protect students’ First Amendment freedoms at public schools. And we support efforts to protect privacy in financial giving so people can support the causes of their choice without fear of retaliation.
Restoring the truth about marriage, the family, and human sexuality
We are leading the charge on legislation to protect opportunities for women and girls in athletics and proposals that preserve privacy and safety for women and girls in sex-separated spaces.
Promoting parental rights
We champion legislation that upholds the fundamental right of parents to direct the upbringing, education, and healthcare of their children.
