Who We Are

A faith-based legal advocacy organization that protects fundamental freedoms and promotes the inherent dignity of all people

Defending Freedom. Seeking Justice.

ADF International is a faith-based legal advocacy organization that protects fundamental freedoms and promotes the inherent dignity of all people.

Working on an international level, we have a fulltime presence at all the institutions of strategic international importance. We are accredited by the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), the European Parliament and Commission, and the Organization of American States (OAS). Additionally, we enjoy participatory status with the EU’s Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) and engage regularly with the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE).

We also work alongside Member States at these organizations to protect the fundamental values they were founded to uphold. ADF International’s influence at these key institutions means we are instrumental in shaping policy around the world.

On a national-level, we work with local partners to provide training, funding, and legal advocacy to protect and promote religious freedom throughout Europe, Asia, the Americas, Africa, and Oceania.

Grounded in our Christian faith, we recognize that the key to our existence can be found in the words of Jesus in John 15:5, ‘Apart from Christ, we can do nothing’.
