Southeastern Legal Foundation is a national, nonprofit legal organization dedicated to defending liberty and Rebuilding the American Republic®. Since 1976, SLF has been going to court for the American people when the government overreaches and violates your constitutional rights.
Who We Are
SLF believes that the U.S. Constitution is a complete document, creating limits on government. When the government goes beyond those limits, we hold the government accountable, enforce the Constitution, and Rebuild the American Republic® under the original design laid out by our Founding Fathers.
Americans have a right and duty to safeguard against tyranny and to demand their government respect individual liberty.
SLF protects that right by defending equal protection under the law, confronting government social engineering, and preserving economic freedom.
The First Amendment protects both your right to speak and to not speak. It is what sets America apart from the rest of the world. But in today’s society, our First Amendment rights are under assault as never before.
SLF stands shoulder to shoulder with Americans in court when their free speech rights are stifled by the government.
America’s Founders carefully crafted our Constitution to create a government of limited powers that was governed by the People. Too often, modern government forgets this. And when they do, SLF is there to stop them.
SLF takes the battle to the courtroom and fights against the government’s unconstitutional quest for power and control over your life.
The right to own and enjoy your private property is the original fundamental right. Too often, the government tries to take property or regulate its use without paying just compensation.
SLF works to secure and protect this fundamental right so that all Americans can use and enjoy their property. Since 1976, SLF has been leading this fight in the U.S. Supreme Court.
America’s colleges were once a marketplace where students could exchange ideas freely without fear of censorship. Today, too many colleges coerce students into silence.
SLF launched the 1A Project because it believes that thoughts should be shared, because only through discourse can we learn and grow as a society.
SLF is at the cutting edge of legal challenges to divisive and discriminatory race-baed programming in our K-12 public schools. SLF General Counsel Kimberly Hermann and SLF Litigation Director Braden Boucek recently wrote a piece for The American Mind where the break down the legal battle to save our schools.
In a piece published by The Federalist, SLF Litigation Director Braden Boucek explains why President Biden’s farm loan forgiveness program is unconstitutional and how SLF’s lawsuit is set to bring it to an end.

The United States Supreme Court effectively halts the CDC’s eviction moratorium nationwide, but it did not reach the larger question: Whether the federal government – the executive or legislative branch – has the constitutional authority to stop state court eviction proceedings in the first place.
Southeastern Legal Foundation (SLF) filed a federal lawsuit in the Western District of Missouri to stop Springfield Public Schools from violating the First Amendment and requiring as a condition of employment that its educators commit to equity, become anti-racist educators, and affirm divisive and discriminatory programming that promotes treating individuals differently because of their skin color.
In direct defiance of numerous federal courts that have declared unconstitutional the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) eviction moratorium order, the CDC today took the bold and illegal action of extending and expanding it.
