Our work is not over!
With the overturn of Roe v. Wade, the power to protect the unborn was given back to you – the American people – through your elected representatives. Your state capital is now a critical battleground for protecting Life. That is why we need YOU to march at the Capitol Building to bring a voice for the voiceless. Together, we march to empower women to choose life, and to defend the dignity of the unborn. Join us as we march for both mom and baby!
In addition, this year we are also partnering with Virginia Pro-Life Day to host a full day of pro-life advocacy! To sign up to talk with your state legislator about the importance of standing for life, click here.
Now is the time to build a Culture of Life!

Where Can I Park the Day of the Event?
Depending on which public parking lot you choose to park, you will be able to walk to Capitol Square or use the Pulse Bus Line on E. Broad Street. A map of the rally area will be posted on the website, with directions for both walking and taking the bus line.
Between dropping off and picking up participants, buses can park all day for free at the Richmond Flying Squirrels stadium in the Yellow and Blue lots. The stadium address is: 3001 N. Arthur Ashe Blvd. Richmond, VA 23230. The Blue and Yellow lots are right next to each other and the best way to get to them is to turn at the light onto Squirrels Way. If coming from Broad Street, make a right and if coming from I64, make a left. There is a tall marquee sign at the light. The Blue lot entrance will be on the immediate right and the Yellow lot will be straight ahead. Each lot is labeled.
Will Other Pro-life Events be Happening Around the Virgina March for Life?
Can I Meet with My State Legislators Before or After the Event?
YES- we strongly encourage you to! During the morning, there will be a lobbying event, organized by VSHL, the Dioceses of Arlington and Richmond, and the Virginia Catholic Conference, where you will be provided with resources and training to help you to know the basics of meeting with your legislator to talk about the life issue, and to guide you through the morning, as well as a team of seasoned pro-life advocates to visit the offices with you! There is no better time or easier way to learn how to advocate for the causes that are important to you! We strongly encourage you to take advantage of this advocacy morning.
