Will you be a friend to those being punished and persecuted for their faith?

Everyone says they want to change the world. Will you become a friend – an Amicus – to those standing up for their fundamental freedoms?
Join ADF International’s Amicus Team to support the right of every person to live and speak the truth.

Why join the Amicus Team?

In Latin, amicus means ‘friend,’ but we aren’t just asking you to be a friend of ours at ADF International, we’re encouraging you to be a friend to those in need. Threats to our fundamental freedoms are mounting, but we can and are doing something about it. In a time when censorship is ever-growing, it’s never been more important for us to join together and protect our collective right to speak freely.

In the legal world in which we operate as a ministry, an ‘Amicus curiae’ is a friend of the court permitted to assist with a case – and that’s why we’ve called this new program, Amicus. At any given point in time, we have over 1,000 cases and legal matters open all around the world. And we need your help! Members of ADF International’s Amicus Team grow our advocacy efforts even further, building a world where our fundamental freedoms are cherished and our societies flourish.

We stand up for these freedoms at the major international institutions, in national courtrooms and law-making bodies around the world. Today, you can join us by committing to a monthly gift that will make you an integral part of our mission to advance the God-given right to live and speak the truth.

Everywhere we turn, individuals are punished and persecuted simply for living according to their convictions, but it doesn’t have to be this way. With your monthly contribution, we can do so much more to protect the right of every person to peacefully live out their faith.

– Paul Coleman, Executive Director ADF International
