ALDFund Mission Statement

The mission of the American Legal Defense Fund is:

• To provide funding for legal representation for suitable individuals who are experiencing political and legal persecution; and

• To act as an information clearinghouse on right-wing political and legal persecution in the United States.


ALDF does not itself provide legal representation — in other words, the organization does not act as anyone’s attorney. Instead, it seeks to cover all or part of the costs of such legal representation.
