WASHINGTON — Alliance Defense Fund attorneys and an Augusta State University student they represent in a federal lawsuit are unequivocally condemning plans by the Ku Klux Klan to hold a rally later this month to protest the actions of the university.

“Jennifer and ADF are disgusted by the KKK and all it stands for,” said ADF Senior Counsel David French. “To say more than that or to discuss their activities at length risks bringing more attention to a failed organization that is seeking to exploit news stories for its own purposes. As the KKK admits in news reports, Jennifer has had no contact with them, and neither have we. Neither Jennifer nor ADF wish to give the KKK the attention it craves.”

Alliance Defense Fund attorneys filed the lawsuit Keeton v. Anderson-Wiley with the U.S. District Court for the District of Georgia in July. 

ADF is a legal alliance of Christian attorneys and like-minded organizations defending the right of people to freely live out their faith. Launched in 1994, ADF employs a unique combination of strategy, training, funding, and litigation to protect and preserve religious liberty, the sanctity of life, marriage, and the family.
