The American Center for Law and Justice or ACLJ was formed in Virginia Beach, Virginia in 1990, and its national headquarters is now located in Washington, D.C. – just steps away from the Supreme Court and Congress. The Chief Counsel of the ACLJ (Jay Sekulow) has litigated cases at all levels of the judiciary – from the federal district court level to the Supreme Court of the United States. He has successfully argued several precedent-setting cases before the Supreme Court including:
- Protecting the free speech rights of pro-life demonstrators.
- Safeguarding the constitutional rights of religious groups to have equal access to public facilities.
- Ensuring that public school students could form and participate in religious organizations, including Bible clubs, on campus.
- Guaranteeing that minors could participate in the political process by protecting their free speech rights in the political setting.
