… Engaging in the Battle of Our Generation

Freedom cannot survive in a culture that has abandoned truth and rejected reality. Wherever human freedom is threatened, we stand ready to defend it. In courtrooms, legislatures, and the public square—you’ll find us on the frontlines.

“I say it every chance I get: ADF is absolutely indispensable. Because I follow religious liberty cases closer than most, I know how vital their work is. But it is very, very costly. Christians everywhere should donate generously to ADF (it’s tax-deductible); you never know when the liberty it saves will be your own.”

– Rod Dreher, author of The Benedict Option: A Strategy for Christians in a Post-Christian Nation and Live Not By Lies: A Manual for Christian Dissidents
