About IDFO

protecting future generations

The Institute for Defending Freedom’s Orphans (www.Idfo.us) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization created to defend, protect, and work for the health, welfare, and safety of children in our culture and society. IDFO seeks to confront those in our culture and society who promote activities and polices that threaten the welfare and safety of our children and young people. Children are dependent on adults for many things beyond just their material needs. By definition, children are underdeveloped physically, mentally, morally, and emotionally. In addition to their material needs, adults must provide for a child’s educational, emotional, physical, and moral development. IDFO seeks to reemphasize this need in our culture and society and to encourage the exercise of self-restraint for the sake of children in the political, cultural, and business sectors by sponsoring research and educational initiatives. IDFO also seeks to sponsor litigation to promote social change and the exercise of self-restraint by adults where there is risk of harm to children and where research and education efforts are ineffective. For example, history reflects that tort law has had great success in influencing the actions of companies and individuals to act reasonably and exercise restraint in order to not harm others.

Among other things, IDFO seeks to help those in need of legal assistance with potential injury claims due to exposure to Internet pornography. IDFO seeks to act on behalf of those with the courage to pursue redress for the wrong they have suffered and to prevent others from being likewise harmed. IDFO can provide counsel and legal representation to those interested in discussing a potential claim. All consultations with IDFO’s attorneys are free, confidential, and protected from disclosure by the attorney-client privilege. Moreover, in many instances, legal action can be pursued anonymously through the use of pseudonyms without public disclosure of the identity of the claimant.

Please contact IDFO with any questions or concerns, and to obtain a confidential, legal consultation.
