Benefits of Membership

  • We help our members navigate the legal pitfalls of nonprofit advocacy: AFJ plays a unique role in ensuring our members have the tools, knowledge, support, and guidance to boldly make their case to elected officials and the public so their priorities will get the attention and resources they deserve, while staying within restrictions on advocacy for 501(c)(3) nonprofits.
  • We serve as leaders in the fight for our courts: Our justice system should never be used as a tool to roll back the decades of progress the progressive community has made. For four decades, AFJ has fought to protect the integrity of our federal courts.

Our work, and the collective strength of our members, is crucial in protecting our civil liberties, human rights, and democracy in today’s tumultuous times.
