Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building legal ministry that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith. Together with its allies, this legal ministry works tirelessly to defend religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and marriage and family so the Gospel can flourish.  Alliance Defending Freedom achieves this through the development of national strategies, highly focused training of Christian attorneys and law students, and funding or directly litigating potentially precedent-setting cases at the state and federal levels.  Since its launch in 1994, Alliance Defending Freedom and its allies have won nearly 8 out of every 10 cases litigated to conclusion. More than 1,600 attorneys have been trained at the Alliance Defending Freedom Legal Academy, and more than 1,200 law students have been trained through the Blackstone Legal Fellowship.
