January 21-23, 2022

Every person is needed to build the culture of life and civilization of love regardless of whether or not we attend this year’s March for Life. As we use our gifts to witness to life, we are changing the hearts of our Nation. It has been said, laws don’t change hearts, hearts change laws. You will find resources here to become a stronger advocate for the unborn. We invite you to be part of this ongoing effort “to respect, protect, love and serve life, every human life.”
