Dr. Charmaine Yoest, President and CEO of Americans United for Life, was in Chicago on Friday to receive the prestigious Alliance Award from Alliance Defense Fund. The award was presented at the concluding banquet of this year’s National Litigation Academy. AUL has partnered with the Alliance Defense Fund since its founding in 1994, and Senior Counsel Clarke Forsythe has served on ADF’s Grant Review Committee for 16 years. Both groups have collaborated on numerous court cases defending human life at all stages.
During the award presentation, ADF President Alan Sears said that over the years, one word has always defined Americans United for Life – “dependable.” He went on to praise the reliability and trustworthiness of AUL’s legal counsel, recognizing a commitment to protecting the vulnerable through the law, “Thousands of people are alive today because of AUL’s efforts.”
