Students for Life of America Annual Conference Announces Major Changes

Students for Life of America (SFLA) recently announced significant changes to its annual conference, which is held every year in the D.C. area after the March for Life. For starters, it is no longer the Student for Life of America annual conference; it has been rebranded as the National Pro-Life Summit, with SFLA as just one of four host organizations. This partnership will allow the conference to take place at the Marriott Marquis in the heart of our nation's capitol. (For the last several years, it's been held in Maryland as a cost-saving measure). And while the Summit will continue to have student-focused content, it will also be geared toward graduates.

This year's theme is "History Maker: Casting a Vision for a Post-Roe America." Wisely recognizing that the reversal of Roe will not be the end of the fight, the conference offers workshops in five critical tracks: "Leadership," "Changing Minds," "Bioethics and Battles Ahead," "Empowering Women," and "Winning Strategies." Attendees will learn how to achieve a lasting victory and preserve the right to life for generations to come.

The Event Formerly Known as the SFLA Conference will take place on Saturday, January 25, 2020. For the eleventh consecutive year, Secular Pro-Life will have an exhibit booth. Interacting with college-age activists is so important; today's young adults are the least religious generation in American history, and they must be equipped to make the secular case against abortion if the pro-life movement is to have any chance of success. The connections we make at these conferences reverberate, leading to campus speaking engagements, media coverage, and other opportunities to spread the message.

The cost of an exhibit booth is $2500. If you are able to contribute toward this expense, your generosity would be greatly appreciated. You can donate online here. Thank you!
