Last week, we hosted our first-ever official California March for Life. What an incredible day it was! We are overjoyed by the enthusiasm and support of life that we encountered in Sacramento. Several hundred pro-life Californians came together from all over the state, heard from amazing local lawmakers and speakers, and marched around the Capitol grounds in defense of the unborn.
Not only were pro-life Californians seen on Capitol grounds, but we were heard.
A priority of the California March for Life was for our attendees to contact their California lawmakers to stop a bill that would force health insurance providers to pay for abortions in their entirety. By the end of the day, we had sent several hundred emails to their offices!
One marcher told us
I was so encouraged and excited at how many pro-lifers there were and how peacefully yet enthusiastically they marched around the Capitol Building. The speakers were amazing and it was so cool that they joined us all in marching, and not only speaking. I am hoping to go to the March for Life in DC next year. Thank you so much for making this happen!
We are already looking forward to hosting another California March for Life next year.
Here are some great photos from the rally and march!
We were also joined virtually by several thousand viewers! If you want to watch the inspiring California March for Life Rally, you can re-watch the Livestream of the event on our YouTube channel.
So what’s next?
This month, we are hosting two additional State Marches in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and Richmond, Virginia!
We plan to host many more State Marches in state capitals across the country over the next few years!
State Marches are crucial to our mission of making abortion unthinkable. When Americans gather in their state capitals to march for life, both the local lawmakers and the local community can glimpse just how personal and important this issue is to their constituents and neighbors. Now more than ever, states must unite for life and use their voices for the voiceless. Defending life truly demands local engagement!
