This website was created on behalf of the Boy Scouts of America to inform the public about the legal issues that confront Scouting.
Scouting has been under legal assault and publicity barrage since the Supreme Court of the United States affirmed the Scouts' First Amendment right to freedom of association in 2000. Scouting will defend itself and the constitutional rights we all share as Americans.
Most importantly, Boy Scouts of America will not allow the attacks to sway it from its mission: to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
Please visit this site often to be kept current on its contents.
On behalf of the more than three hundred Boy Scout Councils throughout America, welcome. Thank you for taking the time to read, listen, watch and learn.
