The American Foundation for Equal Rights is dedicated to protecting and advancing equal rights for every American.

The Foundation's first project is a federal court challenge to California's Proposition 8, which eliminated marriage rights for same sex couples. Led by attorneys Theodore B. Olson and David Boies, two of the nation's most preeminent constitutional lawyers, the suit states that Proposition 8 creates a class of "second-class citizens" and thereby violates the U.S. Constitution.

"This unequal treatment of gays and lesbians denies the basic liberties and equal protection under the law that are guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution," the suit states.
