In the Pew Forum ‘s November 2011 report entitled “Lobbying for the Faithful: Religious Advocacy Groups in Washington D.C.,” the Becket Fund was praised as one of the top religious advocacy groups in Washington D.C. The Pew study described the Becket Fund as combining “elements of a think tank with a robust litigation program” that “conducts legal research and generates publications like a think tank but also provides pro bono legal representation for individuals and religious bodies to further the cause of religious freedom.” The Becket Fund was singled out for particular praise due to our expertise in litigation involving the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act.
