Washington, DC (10 December 2008) – American Life League will feature two of the most innovative new voices in the pro-life movement at its Training and Activism Week and Personhood Conference Jan. 21-23.
The TAW will feature Jill Stanek, renowned pro-life blogger and former nurse who launched the Born Alive Truth campaign during the 2008 presidential elections, and Lila Rose, the UCLA student president of Live Action Films who outed Planned Parenthood's cover-up of statutory rape and acceptance of racially motivated donations.
"Jill and Lila's work with new technology and media has helped uncover the truly despicable activity of the pro-abortion movement in America as well as introduce a whole new generation of people to the war on the preborn," said Marie Hahnenberg, project director for ALL's Personhood Conference and Rock for Life's Training and Activism Week. "Jill and Lila have invigorated and inspired thousands of people to take a stand for life and we're very excited to hear their testimony."
Both Stanek and Rose are Life Prizes award winners. Life Prizes from the Gerard Health Foundation is an annual prize program recognizing "those on the front lines of the greatest human life battle of our day."
The Personhood Conference on Jan. 23 will also feature ALL president Judie Brown; Ambassador Alan Keyes; David Bereit of 40 Days for Life; and Kristi Burton, architect of the Colorado Personhood Initiative.
"The pro-life movement has always had personhood for the preborn as our ultimate objective and the recent elections have made that an even more urgent objective," Hahnenberg said, "and we're excited to be able to start the year with a conference that will focus on just that."
The ALL Training and Activism Week and Personhood Conference will take place Jan. 21-23.
American Life League was cofounded in 1979 by Judie Brown.
