March for Life Weekend wrap-up – Thank You for a successful weekend!


The March for Life Weekend for Rock For Life was amazing!  We had an amazing team of young people.  For some they’ve been here before and enjoy the weekend and the opportunities to serve.  For some it was their first time and were amazed and ready to come back next year.

Becca – This weekend was absolutely incredible, seeing the number of people of all ages, faith and walks of life who came together to stand for the rights of the unborn. I feel like God has great things in store for the pro-life movement this year, it will be great to see His impact.

Erik – I just want to thank everyone who gave! This weekend gave me an experience I could have never had without RFL. To see the impact that have on this generation is truly amazing!

Lisa – I’ve been volunteering with RFL for quite sometime and it was such an experience to volunteer yet again this year. I am so indebted to those who make that possible. They are truly a blessing and lives are being saved because of their support.

Nicole – Between RFL and SFLA they both create an amazing experience with supporting an awesome cause. Volunteering for Rock for Life was exciting and exhausting but it is all worth. So much hard work has gone into helping save lives! They do a wonderful job with everything.

Caleb – It was an awesome trip, everyone had a good time, and worked really well together.

Alex – It was an amazing experience! It was incredible to see so many people stand up for something they believe in.

On Saturday and Sunday we helped Students for Life set up and tear down for their conference, which was amazing as always.  If you have never attended Students for Life’s annual conference, you need to do it.

Here at the conference we co-hosted a photo booth with Students for Life.  Nicole Eva Photography took some amazing photos at the booth and throughout the weekend.  Make sure to hire her, she is good!  Click here to view a photo album of the photo booth and click here to view a photo album of other photos from the weekend.

We also treated some attending the conference with a surprise performance by Rocky Loves Emily, an up-and-coming Tooth and Nail band.  These guys rocked the house.  Make sure to check them out here.

The next morning our team helped Students for Life pass out thousands of their signs then we worked at launching IVoteProLifeFirst.com, a collaborative effort between a number of pro-life organizations to get pro-lifers registered to vote AND getting young people pledging to vote for pro-life candidates.  A politician’s position on LIFE is the most important question to be considered when contemplating who to vote for.  If a politician doesn’t advocate human rights for all of us, born and preborn then whose rights will he or she consider stripping away if push came to shove?

So this is a big huge THANK YOU to all who had us in their thoughts, their prayers and also to those who sponsored a pro-life youth activist.  You guys made this happen for us, but more importantly for our Rock For Life team – 15 pro-life youth activists.  We were all so blessed and know that you have made a difference in many lives. THANK YOU!

Unfortunately our annual National Pro-Life Youth Rally had to go from an outside rally with speakers and band performances to a webcast.  Every once-in-a-while the March for Life is hit with rain.  This was the year.  It happens.  Next year we will be out there.

A big huge thanks to the artists who were going to play but no thanks to the rain we didn’t have a chance to see them perform 😦
