Brigitte Gabriel is founder and president of Act for America, which describes itself as a “grassroots citizen action network dedicated to preserving national security and combating the threat of radical Islam.” The Southern Poverty Law Center lists it as a hate group for what it terms anti-Islamic sentiment. The organization, which is based in Pensacola, Fla., lists the spread of Shariah as one of its concerns, and it has been active in several state efforts to restrict the use of foreign laws in American courts. Gabriel is a Lebanese immigrant.
