Real Amish Tour

We’re taking back our story from so-called experts on the Amish who are neither Amish, nor bothered to learn our language.

Speaking & Training Topics

Below are topics we address, delivered individually by Torah or in conjunction with strategic partners.
We can customize talks and trainings for adult, college, or teen audiences.

Wisconsin v. Yoder

Has WI v. Yoder negatively impacted you? We’re overturning the 1972 Supreme Court case, which denies Amish–and by extension ALL–children an education beyond the Amish 8th grade.

Sexual Assault Survivor Advocacy

When a baptized Amish female sexual assault victim reports, or is reported, to the Amish Church, she is forced to ask the perpetrator forgiveness for having “tempted” him. She is forced to do this in front of all the Church members. She is then also given the same punishment as the rapist: six weeks of excommunication. Baptized members who sexually assault children (and there are tens of thousands!) are never punished, not even with excommunication.

Law Enforcement Training

We support law enforcement who work on behalf of Amish sexual assault victims (and victims of other crimes). Our training and resources help enforce the law. The Amish are United States citizens and not exempt from the law. The perpetrators need to be prosecuted and the victims need to be protected.

Female-driven Entrepreneurship

Female entrepreneurs can create new jobs for themselves, as well as others, and effectively disrupt our male-dominated economy and male-driven agendas, including educational deprivation and religious oppression.

LGBTQ+

AHF is a safe place for LGBTQ+ people and their supporters. We welcome Amish and all other Anabaptist-origin LGBTQ+ people. Homophobia and bigotry is particularly a problem among the Amish/Anabaptists, including those who have left the Amish Church and joined other churches.

What People Are Saying

“This thread is literally the most ex Amish or Amish descendants I have ever seen in one place who probably don’t hate me for being gay.”

[Referencing a public discussion about AHF on social media]

“I didn’t realize until I was older how much a lack of education hurt me. There are no decent-paying jobs for us Amish men when we leave, except truck driving and construction.”

“AHF is a safe place for folks who experienced intergenerational violence/familial violence….”
