ADF, which reportedly received more than $55m in contributions in 2018, claims to have more than 3,400 affiliated attorneys and judges worldwide. In the 25 years since it was founded, it has brought 10 cases before the US supreme court, including some of the most consequential cases of the last decade on contraceptive and gay rights.

ADF is, "an aggressive, strategic legal group that is about Christian supremacy and hegemony in the US and in the world," said Frederick Clarkson, a senior research analyst with Political Research Associates. "It's the world under God's law."

The group's work against LGBTQ+ people has led experts on extremism at the Southern Poverty Law Center to label them a hate group. ADF rejects that label.
