A Free World is a Better World.

PLF passionately pursues this vision every single day by empowering everyday Americans to challenge government when it threatens their liberty.

  • It is daunting to stand up to Big Government bullies when they trample our rights.
  • They have the money to outspend us.
  • They have the time to outlast us.
  • If we don’t fight, we lose our liberty, property, and dignity.
  • If we DO fight, we face punishment for not giving up.
  • The world becomes less free.

That’s where a partnership with Pacific Legal Foundation comes in.
PLF empowers citizens to fight back—and win.

Government’s taxpayer-funded wealth means it can outspend and outlast its victims. PLF’s wealth of experience, however, means everyday
Americans can go head-to-head in courtrooms all over the country, including the highest court in the land.

The U.S. Supreme Court heard 12 handed down victories in of our caour cases, bringing justice ses between 1979 and 2018, notching ten wins for
everyday Americans aggrieved by government overreach and abuse. And the momentum continues to build—half of these victories have come
just since 2012, surpassing even the ACLU’s track record over the same time span, with a fraction of the ACLU’s budget.

And PLF clients are on the Supreme Court docket twice more in October.

Not fighting is not an option—there’s too much on the line.

When government abuse goes unanswered, bureaucrats get away with trampling the rights of hardworking Americans.

Allowed to continue, government pushes the American pursuit of progress—and happiness—further out of reach.

But when our clients fight back, they achieve justice for government’s overreach and violation of their rights. They set legal precedent so the same
abuse doesn’t happen to others. And they protect and advance the individual and constitutional rights of all citizens.

Americans know they can fight the law and win—with Pacific Legal Foundation.
