“In a world marked by division, unrest, and fear, the pro-life movement brings together people from all walks of life, each with their own unique mission to promote the inherent dignity of the human person.”
~Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life~
Washington, D. C. – Today, the March for Life Education and Defense Fund announced the first wave of speakers for the 48th annual March for Life on January 29, 2021. Tim Tebow, a two-time national champion, first-round NFL draft pick and Heisman Trophy winner will give an address virtually at the Rally. Marchers will be addressed in person by retired NFL player Benjamin Watson and his wife Kirsten Watson who are authors, speakers, podcasters, movie producers, and parents of seven; Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family; and J.D. Greear, president of the Southern Baptist Convention will speak at the 2021 Rally. Elizabeth Eller, student body president at Christendom College, will be the student speaker this year. Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann of the Archdiocese of Kansas City, KS as well as Cissie Graham Lynch, daughter of Franklin Graham and granddaughter of the late Rev. Billy Graham, will lead the opening and closing prayers. The 2021 March for Life will be led by students from Christendom College in Front Royal, VA who will carry the banner; and students from Immanuel Lutheran School in Alexandria, VA will carry the flags.
All of these speakers work in their own way towards a society that values and protects every human life. The theme for this year’s March for Life is Together Strong: Life Unites and highlights the critical role each person plays in building a culture of life.
“We are thrilled to welcome this remarkable group of speakers to the world’s largest annual human rights demonstration,” said Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life who will emcee the event. “These speakers will showcase that the strength of the pro-life movement is in its diversity. In a world marked by division, unrest, and fear, the pro-life movement brings together people from all walks of life, each with their own unique mission to promote the inherent dignity of the human person.”
