A conversation with Alliance Defending Freedom president Alan Sears
Alliance Defending Freedom, with more than 200 staff and more than 2000 trained and affiliated lawyers, is the largest Christian religious liberty legal organization in the country. ADF came into being more than 20 years ago when the leaders of a number of leading Christian ministries decided that Christian and conservative causes needed a legal alternative to the American Civil Liberties Union. These ministry leaders, including D. James Kennedy and James Dobson, tapped Alan Sears to get the organization off the ground. Sears is a graduate of the University of Kentucky, and holds a law degree from the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law at the University of Louisville.
