The Alliance Defending Freedom has cases pending before the Supreme Court of the United States, but that did not stop them from being removed from the Amazon Smile program. Amazon Smile allows customers to give 0.5% of the price of their purchases to the charity of their choice. However, Amazon chooses to exclude some groups from the list that they deem to be hate groups. Rather than evaluating charities themselves, Amazon relies on the list put out by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
The Alliance Defending Freedom began in 1994 to protect causes related to religious freedom, pro-life causes, and marriage and the family. They claim to have “played a role” in winning 52 cases before the Supreme Court and represent Jack Phillips of the Masterpiece Cake Shop in his case before the highest court in the land.
