The Scandinavian Human Rights Committee has handed Alliance Defending Freedom the 2012 Human Dignity Award, saying ADF has "truly become a global force."

According to an ADF press release, the award is presented to a person or organization that has made a special contribution to human rights. Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Roger Kiska, who lives in Croatia, accepted the award on behalf of his firm.

Kiska, Roger (ADF)"The protection of freedom, life and family are essential to human dignity in any society," he contends. "That's what's behind the work of Alliance Defending Freedom and why we are humbled to receive this award.

"The work we do worldwide to protect and preserve religious freedom, the sanctity of human life and marriage and family is a great honor and responsibility."

ADF has worked tirelessly in an environment not always friendly to Christians in courts and in legislatures in Europe to defend the faith and work for passage of legislation to protect religious freedom, the rights of conscience and other fundamental human rights.
