Each year, the Cardinal O’Connor Conference on Life strives to promote intellectually rigorous discourse on the sanctity of human life as well as build a culture of life both within and beyond the Georgetown community.

Rooted in the Catholic tradition, the Conference is named in the honor of His Eminence John Cardinal O’Connor, who principally committed himself to advocate for the defenseless and eloquently defend pro-life positions.

We aim to encourage discussion among men and women of all faiths and backgrounds, including students, professionals, academics, and clergy. Participants will leave the Conference equipped with the necessary arguments and information to engage their local communities and foster a culture of life.
