We recently obtained another victory for a Christian family facing persecution in Pakistan. Our team on the ground – through our international affiliate, the European Centre for Law and Justice’s (ECLJ) office in Pakistan, the Organization for Legal Aid (OLA) – represented Shahbaz Masih, a Christian man who was illegally detained by police because his nephew had a fight with a Muslim classmate. On February 18, 2020, Shahbaz’s 14-year-old nephew, Ehtisham, an 8th grade student, had a fight with... read more

Today marks a victory for the prolife movement in Maryland. A major pro-abortion bill was just pulled from the state Senate by the bill’s sponsor after our legal team filed written testimony and showed up to testify against it. In a last-minute move, the sponsor of Maryland Senate Bill 664, which sought to amend Maryland’s constitution to include a right to “privacy” (often a euphemism in the law for abortion), pulled the bill from the agenda. The day before the hearing, we supplied written... read more

Amidst today’s liberal, abortion on demand climate, it should not be a surprise that many localities have enacted laws specifically in an attempt to protect abortion clinics and silence peaceful pro-life speech – sidewalk counseling for women seeking abortions. It is becoming more and more important that pro-life advocates understand their right to freedom of speech under the First Amendment. Thankfully, the ACLJ was recently successful in securing the rights of our client to engage women on... read more

At the ACLJ, we’re well aware that the Internet is being weaponized to incite hate and violence against people of faith – and in particular, more and more openly and dangerously against Jews. In the United States, Jews make up only about 2% of the population, yet Jews are the victims of hate crimes more than members of any other faith group – in fact, more than all faith groups combined. According to the FBI , about 60% of all attacks in our country targeting people because of their faith are... read more

The ACLJ secured a victory last week on behalf of a federal law enforcement employee whose religious liberty came under attack. We are continually taking action to defend the religious liberty of Americans across the country. We’ve told you how we have successfully defended schoolchildren who have been chastised by school officials for displaying their faith at school, and a teacher who was ordered not to display a nativity scene in her holiday display. We recently took action for a Christian... read more

The ACLJ just scored a key victory in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in our ongoing defense of the interests our ally Israel against harmful anti-Semitic discrimination and economic terrorism. We filed a critical amicus brief in a case when a lawyer sued the State of Arizona over what he erroneously called suppression of free speech due to his support for anti-Israel organizations and activities such as those by the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction (BDS) movement. As we have argued many... read more

It may only be January, but in the past few weeks, the ACLJ has already scored multiple victories for religious liberty and free speech. Just like last year when we successfully defended the rights of a Christian fourth grader who was forbidden from discussing his faith at school, we’ve once again taken action for a Christian student – this time for expressing her belief that innocent unborn babies need protection. The ACLJ was contacted by the parents of a young girl in New Jersey who wore... read more

This is the latest installment of our year-end victories series looking back at some of the numerous victories by the ACLJ in 2019. This year, we scored a tremendous victory for the conscience rights of pro-life medical professionals, when we defended a pro-life nurse forced to assist in an abortion against her beliefs. The ACLJ filed a complaint on behalf of a Vermont OR nurse who was misled and pressured by hospital superiors into participating in an abortion procedure against her deeply held... read more

This is the latest installment of our year-end victories series looking back at some of the numerous victories by the ACLJ in 2019. This year, as part of its expansion of the Mexico City Policy, the Trump Administration announced that it will block U.S. taxpayer funds from funding or even supporting or promoting abortion internationally. Two years ago, the ACLJ publicly supported President Trump’s decision to reinstate Ronald Reagan’s Mexico City Policy that prohibited the use of U.S. tax... read more

This is the latest installment of our year-end victories series looking back at some of the numerous victories by the ACLJ in 2019. Christian kids have a Constitutional right to bring their Bibles to school. This year the ACLJ took action to defend a child when that right was infringed upon by the school administration. A fourth grader, who often brought his Bible to school so he could read it during recess was told by the school principal that he was no longer allowed to read from it. The... read more
