Amish Issues & Effective Engagement
If you’d like us to speak at your campus, conference, workshop, business, or private event, we’d be honored to help make it happen.
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.
Insular Cross-Cultural Community Building
Law Enforcement Training
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.
