The American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ) has affiliate offices in Israel, Russia, Kenya, France, Pakistan, South Korea, and Zimbabwe, making it uniquely positioned in the fight to preserve freedom of speech and religious freedom around the world.
Through its network of global affiliates, the ACLJ engages in domestic and international litigation, provides legal services, advises individuals and government agencies, and counsels clients on human rights issues. The ACLJ and its affiliates are committed to working within each country’s unique culture to provide relevant legal support, and they have developed a network of legal experts from numerous countries who are readily available for public or private comment on the situation of religious freedom around the world.
We are actively engaged at the United Nations (U.N.) and have Special Consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). Attorneys with the European and American Centers have testified on religious liberties issues before the U.N. Human Rights Council and the U.N. General Assembly, as well as argued before the European Court of Human Rights, and participated in proceedings before the International Criminal Court. Our experts have served on various U.N. committees, provide legal analysis on the status of religious freedom in various countries, and are regularly called upon to provide information to the Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief.
